Integrated weed management - Volunteer Potatoes (Solanum tuberosum)

Volunteer potatoes (Solanum tuberosum) generally are the most significant weed problem in the field following a potato harvest.

Where it is timed appropriately, an integrated weed management (IWM) strategy can be very effective in managing this problem when combining proper harvest practices, using appropriate harvest conditions, physical destruction by tillage, weeding or grazing and herbicide application with tillage.
