With more winter cereals set to go into the ground this autumn, staying on top of troublesome weeds is increasingly important.

Many modern grassweed herbicides utilise actives that are best applied pre-emerge and that means being organised to move during planting, or shortly afterwards. It is also increasingly difficult to achieve full control of grass and broadleaved weeds with a single treatment. This means that sequences must be planned, especially for awkward grassweeds. Herbicide resistance adds a further complication.
