Note to reader, attached is the complete final report for FNE02-402.
I had very little success in determining the amount of time weeding the corn gluten meal vs. non-corn gluten meal sections in 2002. Although some data was collected, they were inconclusive. It appeared there was very little difference in the number of weeds or the amount of time spent weeding between the corn gluten meal sections and the non-corn gluten meal sections. In addition, the amount of beets actually produced was less in the corn gluten meal sections than in the non-corn gluten meal sections (1.89 ounces per linear foot, as compared to 2.53 ounces per linear foot for the non-corn gluten meal sections-neither are anything to brag about).
