Market Development Agronomists Craig White, Matt Willis and Richard Jackman talk about the current weather conditions, pre-emergent herbicide activity/behaviour with Sakura® and Sakura® Flow and what to expect from them in your area, depending on the rain and soil conditions you currently experience.

In this episode:

Market Development Agronomists Craig White, Ian McMaster, Tim Murphy and Gus MacLennan talk about the current seasonal conditions, pre-emergent herbicide activity/behaviour, trial work currently underway with 145 broadacre trials in over 80 locations around Australia, take a look here

Early weeds are the most competitive, so control them early for the most benefit. You can safely use Velocity® in wheat and barley from the 2-leaf crop stage, and Precept® for broadleaf weed control in Oats, Wheat and Barley from the 3-leaf crop stage.

We talk in detail about Aviator® Xpro® (prothioconazole and bixafen) role and tips for managing key leaf diseases like Sclerotinia in canola, Septoria and Eyespot in cereals as examples. Leafshield™ (adjuvant system in Aviator Xpro) ensures even leaf distribution and rapid rainfastness, which is very useful at this time in the season. We have comprehensive tank mix compatibility guides available here.
