Providing the crop an even start with weeds has been one of the tenets of modern weed management systems. Whether in conventional tillage or no-till, almost all growers accept the need to plant the crop into a weed-free seedbed. Weeds present at planting will grow much quicker than the crop and thus become competitive very early in the growing season.
