Getting on top of broad-leaved weed control, without increasing the risk of resistance to sulphonyl urea (SU) herbicides is the challenge faced by Northern and Scottish spring cereals growers this season.
An increase in spring cereal production across much of the UK’s arable heartlands calls for a planned approach to broad-leaved weed control –to prevent yield loss and reduce resistance pressure on ALS herbicides, says Dow AgroSciences.
Most autumn-drilled winter wheat crops in northern England and Scotland are growing away well but where wild oats and broad-leaved weeds pose a threat there is still time to control them, says Dow AgroSciences.
The best time to tackle dock infestations in silage crops is before first cut according to Andy Bailey, grassland agronomy specialist for Dow AgroSciences.
Introducing the new Dow AgroSciences’ Grassland Weed App.
An easy to use tool to help get a fix on cost of weeds in grassland and identify solutions for their removal.
The app will be FREE and will be ready Mid April to download on iPhone/iPad and Android.
