Good weed control is essential for increased cereal yields
Increased row width of 25 cm with weed control in the row improves weed control without reducing yield
By increasing the row spacing from 12.5 cm to 25 cm in your spring cereal grains it will be possible to both carry out weed control and simultaneously establish a nitrogen-fixing catch crop between the grain rows. As long as the number of plants is maintained when increasing the row spacing and crop damage is avoided, a row spacing up to 30 cm will not result in yield loss.
Weed control between the rows results in more than 75% reduction in number of weeds, although aggressive species were reduced less.
Weed control between the catch crop rows after harvest reduces perennial weeds.
