    Any BLW herbicide to use on ww after flowering?

    I have a cracking field of ww, (a result in itself) after sunflowers. It is at the stage of just starting to flower (a worry that we have non stop rain after 2012) and now, the volunteer sunflowers are getting to worrying numbers. Is there anything that can be applied this late? Tia Mark

    Mayweed in winter wheat

    I have a field of winter wheat that didn't receive an Atlantis. It has a scattering of mayweed across it now. It is going into OSR next so wanted to avoid an SU but not sure what would be best. It is reasonably large. What would be my options? I was going to go flurasulam or a dicamba type route...

    Bifenox on OSR

    Realistically, how big Charlock plants can it take out? I wouldn't bother but for the erucic acid contamination issues. I think the odd smaller charlock is feeling sick from the astrokerb but that may be wishful thinking........... And apart from the speedwells on the label what else does it...

    Thinking of trying a few on a field we need to drain in the autumn after harvest. Which are best, late sown winter or springs sown in spring, as it’ll probably be too wet in between, and which come to harvest first? The field has quite bad Italian rye grass in the 2nd wheat at the moment.
