Weeds are one of the most important limiting factors in maize production. They cause important yield losses worldwide with an average of 13% despite weed control measures and 29% in the case of no weed control. Therefore, weed control is an important management practice for maize

production that should be carried out to ensure optimum grain yield. Since the weeds are worldwide despite all the measures reducing the yield on average at least 13%, it is crucial to reduce early season weed competition with application of herbicides in pre-emergence.
