Desiccation of corn allows earlier direct seeding of winter camelina in the northern Corn Belt - Russ W. Gesch, M. Scott Wells, Alexander Hard – Crop Science 2021

Winter camelina [Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz] shows promise as a winter annual cover crop that can be dual cropped with soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] to help diversify the corn–soybean rotation. This 2-yr field study in southern and western Minnesota evaluated desiccating corn with a preharvest aid. Desiccating corn hastened its harvest allowing more time to drill-seed camelina, thus improving establishment.
