CropCast Episode 12 - listen now
In this episode:
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 broad-leaf weed control in Oats, Wheat and Barley from the 3-leaf crop stage.
Lupin crops are establishing well, and along with simazine used pre-emergence, Brodal® Options is an important tool for controlling broad-leaf weeds. These are strong, proven options for weed control.
Chickpea plantings are planned this year and in future CropCast episodes, we will cover Aviator® Xpro® role for managing key diseases in chickpea, cereals, canola and other pulse crops.
And we reveal the “Great Emu War of 1932” – what is that about?
