Grass weeds in non-plough systems
This week’s Tillage Edge discusses how grassweed control has become more important on all tillage farms and especially on non-plough based systems.
Controlling wild oats has become even more challenging with the emergence of herbicide resistance in a small number of populations in counties across the southeast. Increasing populations of sterile brome and canary grass has added to the control challenges on farm.
The Teagasc ECT project has been working with farmers through the country who have different establishment systems and the recent ECT webinar caught up with a number of these farmers who have converted to non-plough based systems and the questions and answers session is worth listening to again.
