Abstract

WILD OATS tend to grow best on heavy, fertile land. They can be a particular problem in wheat crops where soils of this type predominate.

Trials have shown that wild oat competition is more important in a high yielding wheat crop than it is in a low yielding one. The extent of this competition is described in this article.
