Controlling summer weeds:
· Conserves soil moisture and nutrients for crop use
· Reduces the need for high rates of herbicide knockdown before seeding
· Can provide better control for large taproot species in knife point cultivation sowing systems
· Reduces risks of seeding delays
· Reduces risks of seeder blockage by summer weed biomass
· Reduces some weed allelopathic effects (such as toxin secretion)
· Can boost emergence for some crops.
