Management Guide

  • Seed rate should target an even plant stand of plants/m2 in spring.
  • The rapid autumn growth habit means a PGR may be appropriate in early/mid October on crops early sown or on fertile sites to reduced the risk of over development pre winter.
  • The early rapid spring growth habit means PGRs should be considered on forward crops and fertile sites of those with a history for lodging along with appropriate nitrogen rates to avoid oversize canopies. Ensure the Green Area Index is accurately determined at the start of spring growth.
