Cutting at the 3 Leaf Stage

The three leaf stage occurs when the collars of three leaves can be seen without dissecting the plant. This stage will occur approximately 10 days after emergence, with great dependence upon temperature. It is important that planting date is late enough to ensure that plants can grow rapidly at this stage. Slow growth and poor weed control during this stage can seriously reduce yields since the plant is small.
