Description

The number of computer applications for purposes of weed control decisions has increased dramatically in the past eight years. During this time, many efficacy-, and population based weed control decision aids have been developed. One such program, NebraskaHERB, an economic threshold based herbicide selection model, has been developed at the University of Nebraska. This weed management program has been completed for postemergence weed control in soybeans and similar programs will be developed for corn and additional crops. NebraskaHERB, available on floppy disks, runs on IBM compatible personal computers. This user friendly program quickly determines: whether or not it is cost effective to treat a field, identifies the most economically effective treatment (including broadcast and band-applied herbicides as well as cultivation), and ranks all other treatments in order of net profitability. NebraskaHERB will be available to the public during the winter of 1992.
