Description:
"A weed is commonly defined as a plant growing out of place or where it is not wanted. This definition implies a cost associated with the misplaced plant. In sugar beet production, the primary cost is a reduction in yield due to competition. Sugar beet ? weed interactions explains that competition occurs when two or more plants seek a limited resource essential for growth. The four-page bulletin goes further into the nature of competition by discussing light, water, nutrients, and other variables that effect weed control. According to the authors, "Effective weed control is a critical component of profitable sugar beet production. Left uncontrolled, weeds may reduce yield, interfere with harvest, reduce the value of the crop, and increase future weed problems.""
