The article focuses on Alistell, a part of the new Clovercare line from UPL which provides a reliable and safe control for a range of annual weeds without harming clover. Geoff Hull of United Phosphorus stresses the impracticality of going to unnecessary lengths to avoid harming clover populations, such as sowing grass leys and then over-seeding or slot seeding with clover once weeds have been controlled. According to Ian Misselbrook of Advanta seeds, 80 percent of farmers would benefit from including clover in leys at initial planting.
