When it comes to weed control, we don’t have to tell you that good practices can mean the difference between a good yield and no yield. That’s why we’ve put together this quick checklist to help reduce weed resistance and improve weed control.
- Regularly monitor crops for weeds and ensure you clean equipment between crop sites.
- Evaluate the type of weed, what conditions it favours and its life cycle in order to use the right herbicides.
- Try using materials to block weeds where possible as a preventative measure.
- Ensure you start weeding before crops begin to sprout and maintain until just before harvest.
- Target weeds as early on as possible, before they begin to reproduce, and plant crops in the least favourable conditions for weed germination.
- Crop rotation is always an effective method in managing weeds.
- Alternate between herbicides. Look for herbicides that operate differently too – cultural, mechanical and chemical.
- Increase your weed control by planting seeds in narrower rows.
- Only spray herbicides if weeds are present but use the strongest application rate for stubborn weed species.
