Conservation Tillage Systems in the Southeast

Summary

Overview

Conservation tillage systems can be environmentally and economically beneficial for growers in the Southeast, but weed species and management will be different than in conventional tillage systems. Although weed control can be challenging when converting to conservation tillage, there are many weed control options for producers to evaluate when developing their management plan. The use of several management strategies, including multiple herbicide modes of action as well as crop rotations, cover crops and other cultural practices, can provide effective weed control while limiting the risk for developing herbicide resistance. With planning and timely management practices, producers can have successful weed control in conservation tillage systems.
