The best finish requires the best start
With harvest underway, it's that time of year again where our focus begins to switch to a new crop year and getting the best establishment possible. Last year, in many areas of the country, conditions for black-grass control were favourable allowing those farmers to attain good levels of control. But the fight against black-grass never stops and the focus for getting your crop off to the best start begins again now. We'll be continuing to deliver everything we can to support you and you can read our view on the current situation of black-grass control from our technical team here.
At this busy time of year, our seed treatments give you maximum flexibility, helping you to manage your autumn workload. Redigo Deter helps to ensure autumnal pests such as wireworms, slugs and aphids carrying Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus (BYDV) don't damage your crop from the outset for better crop establishment - which is also critical for black-grass control. Find out more about Redigo Deter here.
Another serious challenge facing the industry this autumn is the pressure on the use of seed treatments. It's critical that we stand up as an industry to ensure we continue to operate at the highest stewardship standards possible, but also to make our voices heard by our MPs and MEPs. We're focused on supporting you in getting the required arguments across and our special 'Save our Seed Treatments' area will tell you what we're doing and how you can help. Visit it here.
