Weed control is important to prevent losses in yield and production costs, and to preserve good grain quality. For example, weed seeds in grain can cause the buyer price to be reduced.

Control of weeds during land preparation is crucial to reduce the amount of weed pressure in the field. Land preparation should start 3−4 weeks before planting.
