New guide to beating blackgrass

By Tom Allen-Stevens

THREE spray manufacturers have got together and released a new free guide to effective blackgrass control in time for the autumn herbicide season.

The 12-page guide contains advice on managing existing resistant blackgrass populations and preventing resistance developing.

Combining cultural with effective mixed herbicide chemistry is key as blackgrass gets tougher, the publishers – DuPont Monsanto and Syngenta – point out.

Also explored are blackgrass control when early drilling and the role of ploughing versus minimum tillage.
