Abstract

In a 2-yr field study with preplanting-soil-incorporated treatments of atrazine [2-chloro-4-(ethylamino)-6-(isopropylamino)-s-triazine] and metribuzin [4-amino-6-tert-butyl-3-(methylthio)-as-triazin-5(4H)-one], tolerance of soybeans [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] to these herbicides, as measured by seed yield, was increased by increasing the seeding rate one-and-one-half or two times that normally recommended. These results agree with suggestions in the literature that plants can compete for herbicide in the soil, and suggest that increased seeding rates of soybeans can partially reduce the adverse effects of atrazine carryover or excessive metribuzin application.
