463. Anon.. 1989. The winds of change.. Agrichemical Age, November 1989.
Adoption of chem fallow has been slow in the northern Plains, being used only on about 20% of the acres. It is one of the best practices to prevent wind erosion in the region. Roundup with 2,4-D and atrazine has been the standard treatment. Now Command is labelled for this use, and Command/atrazine is another choice. Carryover problems with atrazine can be avoided if rates are kept below 1/2 lb/ac.

3070. Tanaka, D.L. and J.K. Aase. 1989. Influence of topsoil removal and fertilizer application on spring wheat yields.. Soil Sci. Soc. Am. J. 53:228-232.
In 3 of 5 years, soil removal treatments reduced spring wheat yields an average of 9, 28, and 45% for 0.06, 0.12, and 0.18 m soil removal treatments, respectively, over all fertilizer treatments. The data suggest that P was the most limiting nutrient and additions of N fertilizer without P resulted in small yield increases.
