Abstract

Experiments were conducted in 2007 and 2008 to determine the impact of row spacing, sowing speed and soil incorporation method on wheat damage caused by a number of soil applied herbicides. Wheat tolerance varied with herbicides, with trifluralin causing the most damage, followed by pendimethalin and triasulfuron. The narrow row spacing (17.8 cm) and the higher travelling speed (10 km/h) caused greater damage than the wide row spacing (22.9 cm) and the lower speed (6 km/h), respectively. Soil incorporation methods also affected wheat tolerance to herbicides, with star harrow treatment causing the most damage and the press wheels the least.
