INFORMATION VALUE IN WEED MANAGEMENT

Use of the economic threshold to improve the efficiency of preemergent-herbicide treatment decisions is limited by a lack of weed information.

Empirical results suggest that early season weed information can have value in cabbage weed management in Massachusetts.
