Brome identification

Brome grasses are some of the most competitive grassweed species. There are five main species of brome which frequently occur as weeds of arable crops in the UK; however it can be difficult to tell apart the different species.  Knowing which species of brome you have is important, as cultural control options vary between species.

This detailed leaflet on identification of bromes was produced by Dr Stephen Moss and Rothamsted Research, and sponsored by Dow AgroSciences.
