The article discusses the importance of identifying the priority weeds to control by oilseed rape growers. Among the most competitive weeds are cleavers and poppy. David Ellerton of ProCam explains that weed resistance and tolerance concerns means growers looking to control grassweeds should not rely on fop and dim chemistry. Agronomist Ben Atkinson adds that silicon wetting agents such as Silwet can improve the efficacy of Kerb herbicide.
