Grassland weed control

Managing weeds in grass for grazing or conservation is crucial to maximise its nutritional value and ensure efficient animal utilisation and performance.

High levels of weeds in grass swards not only reduce pasture’s nutritional value, but restrict grazing areas. Most weeds reduce the nutrition of the sward and provide excessive competition for valuable grasses, particularly in newly-sown leys.

In this course, grassland weed specialists Mark Ballingall from SAC and Mark Palmer from Agrovista offer their advice on the common problem grassland weeds, their growth habit and their management using well-timed herbicide applications.
