Syngenta grass weed research at the Barton Black-grass Innovation Centre is a pioneering, innovative and practical approach to deliver integrated solutions to beat Black-grass – and it’s working.

Growers and agronomists are now invited to a review of 2018 trials season results, at 9.00 am on Tuesday 27th November at Cambridge Rugby Club.

The meeting will provide insights into trials work looking at the latest innovations in:

  • Cultural control
  • Herbicide efficacy
  • Application advances

The meeting will review the results from 2018 and provide insights into the work at Barton. Weather permitting, there will be the chance to take a tour of the site, for an update on this autumn’s trials work and key findings so far.

This in-depth session provides a vision into the practical integrated approach to Black-grass control that growers can adopt on their farms – using techniques proven to work at the Syngenta Innovation Centres.
