Blackgrass blow

HOLD-ups on release of Twinagro herbicide JV 485 are a blow for growers faced with blackgrass problems, says UAPs Chris Bean. "The loss of any material in the blackgrass armoury is serious." However, Cyanamids AC210 could be available for autumn 2000, offering growers another product with no known resistance problems, he notes.
