Abstract: A three-year field experiment was conducted to test, if continuous maize cropping with intercrops allows dispense on soil active ingredient S-Metolachlor. We tested two maize cropping systems with foliar active herbicides and intercropped grass against the previous standard system without intercropping and the use of soil-active herbicide SMetolachlor. Over a three-year period, the cropping system with Lolium spp. as intercrop confined weeds as effectively as the common practice using S-Metolachlor.
