Glyphosate products may be used pre-harvest on a range of crops to control weeds, aid harvesting and protect grain quality and food safety. This publication outlines stewardship measures to maximise product efficacy and minimise crop residues.
This practical guide for farmers and agronomists brings together research to allow improved weed management through a rotation dominated by autumn-sown crops. Originally published in 2010, the 2017 revision has a new look and some minor changes.
Weed control in oats is difficult because there is a limited range of herbicides available. In organic oats, there are three key methods of management: control during the ley phase of the rotation, stale seedbeds and mechanical weeding in the crop.
