Objectives Help characterize the competitive relationship between wheat and wild oats.

Establish a phenology model for wheat-wild oat populations.

Investigate the critical period(s) for wild oat-wheat interaction.

Establish a model for wild oat-wheat interaction and relate this to a basic wheat model.

Utilize these models as a basis for understanding and predicting the overall interactive effects of wild oats in wheat.

Evaluate the effectiveness of the model in determining the interactions and determine if this approach could be used in other weed-crop systems.
