Banding herbicides may not only reduce the application rate of herbicides such as atrazine by 50% but may also provide other services to the ecosystem such as reduced soil erosion and nutrient runoff, habitat for beneficial insects and natural enemies, reduced buildup of resistant weed biotypes due to lower selection pressure, and increased levels of floral biodiversity and resultant levels of carbon sequestration. However, buildup of weed seed bank remains to be the primary concern among the scientific and farming communities. This may be addressed by the ability of newer herbicide pre-mixtures to control a broad spectrum of weeds effectively.
