When shifting from traditional ploughing to no-till cultivation there will be new possibilities to weeds. However, the changes in weed population are more dependent on each field than on cultivation method.
We had two field trials in southern Finland (Jokioinen and Mietoinen) on heavy clay for four years (2001-2004). The main treatment was direct seeding or conventional sowing after autumn ploughing combined with spring rotary hoeing.
