Bayer CropScience has produced a ‘Pocket Plan’ that aims to remind growers of the key elements of blackgrass management.

In particular, it stressed population management, use of cultural controls, application and timing, the firm’s Chris Cooksley said.

“This season has shown the variations timing can have when using Atlantis. If you went in the autumn you generally got good control, but in the spring it has been a variable experience.”
