The article focuses on the recommendation of the Springbok herbicide by BASF for oilseed rape growers, particularly those struggling to control cranesbill and shepherd's purse species. The herbicide contains a new active ingredient, dimethenamid-p, plus metazachlor, which has both residual and contact action. Springbok provides better activity on all key weeds than 1.5 litres per hectare of Butisan S. Springbok is effective in dry conditions, which can be important for early autumn drillings.
