The fight against black-grass starts now
Harvest is over, and the new season of drilling wheat and barley crops is beginning across the country. When to drill is an important consideration, particularly where black-grass threatens, and in many areas delaying drilling has to be thought of as a key part of the control strategy.
Once drilled, there are good reasons to apply a pre-emergence herbicide for black-grass within 48 hours of drilling. Read here why we suggest choosing Liberator, and learn more why last season was helpful for controlling the weed, while the previous year was harder, and what we can learn from each.
It is also critical when drilling treated seed to follow guidance to minimise risk to the environment and operators and to help #saveourseedtreatments, as well as helping get the crop off to the best possible start. Here are some great stewardship tips.
