AbstractGuayule is a desert-adapted crop that is grown using agronomic practices like those used to grow cotton. Guayule seed is planted shallow in dry soil on beds and then irrigated to germinate the seed. Guayule seedlings are small and grow slowly making them poor competitors with weeds. Weeds must be actively managed for several months after planting until the crop canopy closes and guayule becomes very competitive against weeds.
