Management of later sown winter cereals

Later sown crops that did not receive a pre-emergence herbicide present more challenges for growers to control grass weeds this autum.

Ciaran Collins, Tillage Specialist, joined the Tillage Edge podcast to discuss how to manage these later sown crops over the coming months, including weed control options.

Ciaran emphasises the importance of early control of annual meadow grass in winter barley as there are no options later in the season.  Where a pre-emerge is not applied, then a post-emerge application can be effective, as long as the annual meadow grass is not into the tillering stage.
