A. Jensen, NDAC extension agronom- ist, "Besides being highly unprof. liable, weedy corn fields reduce the yield of next year's crop." he adds. "If wild oats, foxtail and other weeds are a problem in your fields, get the jump on t~hem this year by harrowing immediately after corn 'planting to bring on rapid weed seed germination. Just as soon as the weeds break through, go into the fields with a rotary hoe. Operate the rotary hoe fast while the weeds are small, to do the best job. This implement does a good job when weeds are small, especi- ally if the soil has a thin crust." Corn fields can be rotary-hoed several times, both before and after the corn is up, according to the N- DAC~ 'agronomist. -" "If you do not have a rotary hoe, or conditions are not right for a harrow, but use tilde harrow more carefully and fewer times, especi- ally after the corn is up. Warm, sunny afternoons are best for weed killing. "When tne corn is too tall for the rotary hoe, continue weed control. with the regular cultivator. Cul- tivate at a shallow depth to avoid pruning roots. Cutting of roots causes reduced corn yields." For chemical control, 2,4-D call be used on broadleaved weeds af- ter the corn is up.
