Bill Long describes stubble / herbicide interactions at seeding

Bill Long from Ag Consulting Co discusses the advantages of double cut stubble, resulting in a greater chaff fraction and less straw, allowing faster breakdown of stubble residues following harvest. Bill emphasizes that  it is best to keep as much stubble standing rather than laying over to increase herbicide efficacy during crop establishment. Standing stubbles also act as a barrier to soil throw between rows, reducing the chance of crop damage from high herbicide concentrations.
