Significant populations of grassweeds, including ryegrass and brome, threaten winter wheat yields this year after farmers struggled to implement robust herbicides in the autumn.
Chickweed is now growing and can smother established grassland or young leys, warns Dr Nicola Perry, grassland specialist with Corteva Agriscience. And its prostrate growing habit allows it to rapidly colonise any gaps in the sward.
Corteva Agriscience is today (Wednesday 5 February) launching it’s ‘FarmMoreForage’ initiative at Dairy-Tech 2020 at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.
Corteva AgriscienceTM will be marketing the renowned post-emergence herbicide Titus in 2020, bringing the product back inside the company that developed it more than 20 years ago.
Corteva’s impressive innovations were showcased to thousands of farmers and agronomists at CropTec 2019.
