Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


Chaff lining and chaff tramlining are forms of Harvest Weed Seed Control (HWSC) that,owing to their low cost and ease-of-implementation,have potential for wide-spread adoption. The chaff environment is likely to be suboptimal (compacted soil and chaff covering) for seed persistence and seedling establishment, therefore, this practice has the potential to be as effective as other forms of HWSC in driving down weed seed banks.
