    the herbicides

    Sponsored Ad:
    It is crucially important to farmers that the herbicides they use to
    control weeds not damage their crops. One very effective herbicide
    is safe for corn, but soybeans are damaged even by the herbicide’s
    residue, which remains in the soil more than a year after the herbicide
    is applied. Soybeans and corn are not sown together in the same
    riled;nevertheless, most farmers are reluctant to use the herbicide
    on their corn.
    Which of the following, if true, provides the strongest justification for the farmers’ reluctance?
    1) The residue of the herbicide in the soil a year after application is
    not enough to control most weeds effectively.
    2) To maint ain the nutrients in the soil, corn and soybeans are often
    planted in A riled in alternate years.
    3) The demand for soybeans is growing faster than is the demand
    for corn.
    4) For maximum yield, soybean plants are grown closer together to
    each other than are corn plants.
    5) The application of herbicides is less critical for soybean than for
    corn crops.

    Is it B???
    The farmers may be reluctant to use the herbicide as it prevents the possibilty of growing soybean the next year.. But if planting soybean alternately with corn is good for the soil, the farmer may not want to spoil that advantage..

    The herbicide’s residue will negatively affect the corn crop when corn is grown after soyabean is harvested.

    Re: the herbicides

    I always had much interest in the agriculture of our country. While reading several articles and information, I came across many articles on herbicides. We all are very much aware of the use of herbicides in healthy production of our crops. Weed management is essential for dealing with unwanted growth in plants. I came across the wonderful products of Dhanuka Agritech Ltd, which had such great reviews from umpteen users and clients.
