The differences in emergence characteristics of weed species are one of the reasons why weed management is such a difficult task. Knowing when weeds emerge can help improve weed management systems by increasing scouting efficiency and help determine optimum weed control tactic timing (seedbed prep, herbicide application, cultivation, etc).
