Maize reacts very sensitively to competition from weeds in early growth stages. Without adequate weed control, the crop cannot establish itself. When the rows are closed, only weeds that overgrow the maize, like bindweed, are critical. Important leading weeds in maize are goosefoot, orache, knotweed, speedwell, chamomile and gallant soldier. On typical maize sites, the millet spectrum develops well, which is difficult to control.
