Clumps of volunteer beans are threatening crop establishment and good grassweed control in autumn-sown cereals, warns Dow AgroSciences cereals herbicide expert Stuart Jackson.
Mr Jackson says: “We’ve noticed a marked increase in volunteers this autumn, which isn’t surprising considering the increased area of beans sown last season. Beans pose a double threat – not only do they shade grassweeds from contact herbicides, but larger clumps can reduce establishment leading to gappy crops.”
