Especially in the early development stages of sugar beets, the risk of yield losses due to early competition from weeds is critical. Therefore sugar beets must be kept weed-free until the rows are closed. A clean field also simplifies the harvesting process. Depending on the previous crop, different weeds occur. Goosefoot, cleavers, orache and knotweed appears regularly. In crop rotations with maize the millet spectrum, amaranth, and gallant soldier develops well; cereal rotations are marked by black grass and volunteer grain.
