retaining crop residue on the soil surface to reduce erosion create an environment favorable for downy brome Adoption of reduced-tillage fallow systems in the western USA is because tillage operations are shallow (or eliminated) limited by winter annual grass weeds such as downy brome (Bromus and downy brome seeds are not buried deep enough to tectorum L.). Moldboard plowing is an effective means of controlling downy brome in winter wheat (Tritcum aestivum L.)–fallow systems. prevent seedling… CONTINUE READING
