The article reports on the advice given by Jim Orson, research and technical director of The Arable Group (TAG) during a show held at its headquarters in Norfolk, England in June 2008. According to Orson, winter wheat growers must look harder at their planned herbicide programmes. Blackgrass control from Atlantis was slipping, isoproturon and trifluralin's were being withdrawn and there was cross-compliance uncertainty over pendimethalin doses. If European Union (EU) proposals were adopted, the only grassweed products left would be Topik and Defy.
