Sick of watching weeds pop up and grow while you wait for chemicals?
Welcome To The War Against Weeds.
Gazillions of dollars have been spent formulating new molecules to control the weeds that compete with our crops and which persistently – and frustratingly quickly – become resistant to chemical actives.
The broadacre herbicide range has grown so substantially over the last few decades that they even ran out of letters for our Mode of Action groups (check out what you need to know here).
Check out our summaries and tips below, or see our blog pages for updates.
What’s New In The Market:
The newest kid on the block, check out Bayer’s new Mateno Complete – the next step up from Sakura in weed and ryegrass control.
Do you want to cut through broadleaf and grass weeds fast? Nufarm’s new Terrad’or G spike is blowing us away with fantastic results.
FMC’s Overwatch is a recent pre-em herbicide with excellent results against ryegrass.
Even old king Glyphosate has been revamped with Nufarm’s new Crucial 600; find out why it’s the next step in glyphosate technology.
A Reminder On Summer Spraying:
In recent years, growers have been warned to be extra careful when summer spraying with 2,4-D. Due to off-target damage, new mandatory changes are in place regarding 2,4-D spray requirements.
So even if you’re miles away from vineyards and susceptible crops, it’s essential to be aware of inversion layers and how they affect spray drift.
Thankfully, new 2,4-D products are coming to the market, such as Nufarm’s Dropzone and Corteva’s Colex-D, and new technology like the Mesonet to make your life somewhat easier.
There’s also new chemistry to hit the Group 14 (G) markets – check our tips to know when it’s best to use Group G spikes.
Oh – and remember, if you are doing a summer spray, make sure you’re aware of all your plant back periods.
Pre-em herbicides have become one of our most important tools in battling weeds and herbicide resistance. And thankfully, we’ve seen a lot of new technology hit the market in recent years.
But pre-em’s are usually not cheap. And if you’re dry sowing, you’ll want to ensure you get the best out of your pre-em chemicals.
The timing of sowing can vary depending on weather and seed variety, and our agronomists get asked a lot of questions. One of the most common is whether it’s worth waiting for a knockdown spray, or go in with pre-emergents?
There are some great options now available in the Post-Em market. For example, ADAMA’s new Priority covers a variety of weeds.
If you’re unsure about what has and hasn’t worked, perhaps you need options to chase down escaping weeds.
When the weather starts cooling down and getting icy, be wise and understand how frosts can affect your spray results. And this time of year is when you need to also be careful with group I herbicide timing.
If you’ve tried multiple herbicides and are still struggling with weed control this time of year, check out our tips about why you might not be getting the results you want.
A great tool in reducing weed seed, learn more about what herbicides you can use for pre-harvest desiccation.
