Sleepy seeds (aka seed dormancy) & herbicide application

Sleep. It’s something essential to human survival and most people would say they love a good nap!

Turns out weed seeds tend to like to take a rest too, but they prefer the depths of the soil, rather than a comfy bed/couch/passenger car seat (you get the picture – sleep is👌🏼).

Anyhoo, while the seeds are hibernating (going into seed dormancy), much like bears 🐻 (not really like bears), it can have real implications on your crop. AHRI researchers Danica Goggin and Mechelle Owen give us an insight into why this can be an issue.

Your hosts Peter Newman & Jessica Strauss also talk about herbicide application of pre and post-emergent herbicides.
