|Plan fields to be reseeded this year. |
Check leys after winter for leatherjacket and bibionid damage.
|Check for chickweed infestation and treat early growth when conditions allow. |
Check dock growth and plan programme of control for the year.
Use translocated herbicides, such applied from the end of March/early April according to weather and growth stage. Allow 28 days needed for maximum translocation. Use correct water volumes.
Docks need to be actively growing and still at the rosette stage.
Apply glyphosate for sward destruction before maize and
Continue to monitor pest activity.
Ploughing grass for maize? Apply
Dursban WG for leatherjacket control.
1st cut silage
Check dock regrowth after 1st cut.
|Check all pastures for docks, nettles and thistles. |
Recommend dose and timing for glyphosate before reseeding.
|Where half doses of herbicide were applied in the spring, follow up with the second half dose. |
Monitor reseeds with respect to grass, clover and weed growth.
Annual weed control.
Look out for crane fly activity.
Check best timing for frit fly control with Dursban WG.
Check Pestwatch reports for frit fly activity.
|Monitor dock, nettle and thistle regrowth and consider treatments for this autumn or next spring. |
Successful control can be achieved from translocated herbicides applied to actively growing weeds through the autumn.
Note crane fly activity to plan autumn leatherjacket treatment with Dursban WG to obtain the most
