Abstract

Weed control in sweet corn is very important since the competition they create reduces yield and quality factors such as ear size and tip fill. Weeds filling row centers can also interfere with pest control sprays and make harvesting more difficult. Herbicides are an important tool in weed management programs and in April 2005, the EPA registered the use of Callisto in sweet corn. To help growers utilize this new product effectively, we looked at different combinations and application timings of Callisto with the herbicides Dual II Magnum and AAtrex 4L for crop safety and weed control effectiveness.
