Atrazine herbicide has been in an EPA special review since 1994 because of surface and groundwater contamination concerns. Beginning in 1997, we evaluated atrazine and non-atrazine herbicides in conventional tillage corn and no-till corn on university research farms at Clay Center and Lincoln, Nebraska. The objective was to compare some common atrazine and non-atrazine herbicides for weed control and crop response. Thirteen herbicides were selected to represent commonly used herbicide classes and treatment timings. This NebFact reports the conventional till results.
