This NebGuide discusses how to operate liquid herbicide application equipment on tillage implements.
Heightened concerns for energy and soil conservation have caused producers to reduce the number of secondary tillage operations while trying to maintain satisfactory incorporation of herbicides. Many herbicides are carried into the soil by rainfall or sprinkler irrigation and do not require mechanical incorporation. However, some soil-applied herbicides require mechanical incorporation to reduce volatility and photodecomposition losses. These are Eradicane, Sutan+ and Treflan.
