The article discusses various herbicide programs that Georgia corn producers can opt to adapt which include spraying a quart of atrazine at planting, as suggested by Extension Weed Scientist Eric Prostko. The benefits include obtaining the maximum legal amount of atrazine that can be used in corn and having more time to make a postemergence application. Some of the weeds threatening the crops which researchers are focused on controlling include the Palmer amaranth and the tropical spiderwort.
