Field Notes: Harvest Management

All strips were planted on the same day with a pre-harvest or harvest aid application for each plot. The high clearance sprayer drove through each plot, including the untreated ones, to equalize the effect of tire tracks. Following harvest, individual wheel tracks were harvested and an estimated yield loss of 6.3 per cent was recorded. Application of Roundup and Heat® with 15 gallons per acre, while Reglone® was applied with 20 gallons per acre.
