Barton Black-grass Focus Site
The Syngenta Black-grass Innovation Centre at Barton is part of a network of trial sites across the country, providing practical solutions for farmers. The site is now in its third year, and is continuing to generate useful insights into the short- and long-term impact of cultural, chemical and application methods on grass weed control and yield. Trials this year include:
• Cultural Control • Herbicide Efficacy • Application Advances
