Project title: WEED SEED GERMINATION IN WINTER CEREALS UNDER CONTRASTING TILLAGE SYSTEMS

Grass weeds and Galium aparine are major weed problems in North European arable cropping systems with high proportions of winter crops, especially winter wheat. Problems are further accentuated where inverting tillage is omitted as weed seeds tend to accumulate in the top soil layer and timing of herbicide applications sometimes seems to target the emergence pattern of these weeds poorly. Consequently, the main of this project intend to better understand the cumulative emergence patterns of these weed species in winter sown crops under different tillage regimes. More specifically, the soil layers from which specie predominantly emerge, their rate of emergence and the interactions between cumulative emergence and the degradation of soil applied herbicides commonly used.
