Summer weeds can rob subsequent crops of soil nitrogen and stored soil water. They can also reduce crop emergence by causing physical and/or chemical interference at seeding time.

Achieving timely control of summer weeds can result in tangible benefits through increases in crop yield and/or quality and speed up the sowing operation.

However, the best time to treat these weeds may also coincide with hot temperatures, follow periods of severe moisture stress and require the inclusion of additives to the spray tank.
