Embrapa Cerrados presents results of study on reducing weed infestations in soybean crops

A study from Embrapa Cerrados, a branch of the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation located in the Federal District, showed that the intercropping of grains with forage grasses is capable of reducing the incidence of weed infestations in soybean crops. After using these systems in two harvests, a reduction of up to 87% of in the dry weight of these invasive species was observed. The employment of this technique also resulted in an increase of 8% in the average productivity of oleaginous plants. These results suggest that forage grasses, in addition to being used as soil cover, may also be inserted into intercropping systems or planted in succession as a strategy for sustainable intensification of an agricultural system.
