What next? (black-grass)

Actions

1. Map where you predict grass weed seeds are based on previous cultivation strategies.

2. Monitor weather at weed flowering to help understand dormancy for the coming season.

3. Adapt your herbicide strategy accordingly, using stacks or sequences for best control.

4. As a guide, aim to apply pre-em within 48 hours of drilling; apply sequences 3 weeks later. Adequate soil moisture is important for good performance of residual chemistry.

5. Start spring cropping in the autumn by preparing seed beds to achieve good crop establishment.
