Description

Abstract. The employment of a computer model to facilitate weed management decisions has the potential to reduce herbicide use when weed densities are below an economical threshold as opposed to applying prophylactic herbicide treatments in anticipation of weed problems. The computer model was constructed by linking two submodels representing soil-applied and postemergence weed management decisions. The models are farm specific, user friendly, and consider most herbicide options and herbicide efficacy by weed species. The submodels were developed in LOTUS.
