Effects of cultivation and rotations on weed control

As part of IWMPRAISE, we have been investigating the effects of varied cultivation controls on weed populations. To do this we have used the long-term Sustainability Trial for Arable Rotations Trial (STAR) in Suffolk, with Annual Plough, Shallow non-inversion and deep non-inversion as treatments. Using ground sheets to protect the weed populations from herbicide, we will hopefully detect some differences as they emerge through the year.
