The article focuses on the advice of agronomists for growers to delay grassweed pre-emergence herbicide spray while the weather is dry in Great Britain. According to Dan Robinson of Agrivice, some of the reasons why growers were reticent in spraying are crop safety and the possibility of having to redrill if emergence was poor. Chris Bean of UAP warned that activity from trifluralin would be reduced in warm conditions.
