BAZOOKA is part of the Syngenta hybrid barley portfolio and an excellent choice for drilling this autumn. Here are five things you may not know about it...

  3. BAZOOKA was one of the varieties that was used in early trials exploring the superior suppressive effects of hybrid barley against grass weeds like black-grass
