Maximising timeliness of applications of both graminicides & fungicides is paramount. Broadway Star or Unite offer market-leading control for brome, ryegrass & wild oats, plus robust blackgrass control in the case of Unite, they do so whilst offering you the greatest flexibility to tank mix fungicides (including chlorothalonil) with this application to best control early diseases.
Getting rid of broad-leaved perennial weeds like docks will increase grass silage yields and improve its quality, allowing cows to produce more milk from forage, and less from expensive bought-in concentrates, which is helpful in times of lowered milk prices.
“Research shows that a 10% population of docks in a sward results in 10% loss of grass growth, reducing the amount left to cut or graze,” explains Brent Gibbon, grassland agronomy manager for Dow AgroSciences.
“Where docks are present, weed control is a small cost relative to the gain in extra grass and silage produced.”
After the registration of Pixxaro EC™ in Denmark in February, a second product containing the breakthrough ingredient Arylex™Active has been registered in Denmark. Zypar, which also contains Florasulam, has been approved for the control of broad-leaved weeds in winter- wheat, rye and triticale and in spring- barley and wheat.
