Decision Time for Winter Grass Weed Control
As we look forward to longer days and planning for Spring Herbicide options, now is a good time to evaluate how well the autumn herbicide spray programs have performed.
Generally most Winter OSR was drilled into warm moist seedbeds in August; this was a key factor in getting the crop away quickly reducing the risk of flea beetle damage. Establishment was good nationally; this was good news especially in the Eastern Counties where many crops over the last few years have failed from drought or flea beetle damage.
