Kakriainen-Rouhiainen, S.; Väisänen, J.; Vanhala, P. and Lötjönen, T. (2004) Terminating ley with mid-summer bare fallow controls Elymus repens. In: Proceedings, European Weed Research Society, pp. 181-182.
The results of this study suggest that mid-summer bare fallow is a relative effective way to reduce the amount of Elymus repens when terminating ley. Early started stubble cultivation is also less sensitive to moist weather, leaving more time for exhausting the rhizome reserves of E. repens. Stubble cultivation and catch crop do increase the costs but not as much as bare fallowing for the whole summer would do. Additionally, mid summer bare fallow allows harvesting one forage yield prior to bare fallowing.
