With increasing restrictions on chemical usage for weed control and the increasing threat of blackgrass spreading across the nations wheat fields it is essential that growers look to all options when controlling the weed.
Growers need to employ a combination of cultural and chemical strategies and pay attention to detail in order to successfully control blackgrass infestations.
Machinery supplier OPICO staged a 'Beating Black-grass' seminar last month where cultivation options as well as the application of key grass weed herbicide Avadex were the focus.
