Step 5

Spray out annual ryegrass with glyphosate + insecticide in spring

  • Spray out annual ryegrass with glyphosate + insecticide in spring to ensure the summer crop is planted into good moisture.
  • This will provide excellent control of annual and perennial weeds and conserve moisture for the following brassica crop.

  • Controlling all grasses in the paddock eliminates any wild type endophyte present
  • Apply an insecticide with glyphosate if direct drilling, this will lower insect populations such as Nysius and Springtails (always follow chemical withholding periods)
