The Autumn Cereal Herbicide Stack
Grass weeds will be the main target for cereal crops in the autumn which will determine the herbicide strategy. Many of the herbicides used for grass weeds will also have some effect on broadleaf weed activity too.
The function of the autumn stack is to get the crop off to the best possible start. The pre-emergence application removes potentially competitive weeds before they have the chance to emerge and sensitise those that do. For the pre-emergence treatment to not impede the growth of the crop it is very important to ensure seed is drilled to a depth of 32mm.
