    I have a small patch of oats which due to low rate liberator have no weeds👍, except cleavers. I don’t have a starane type product but I do still have a lot of MCPA and 24d which I mix for grass fields. Would on of those or a mix kill cleavers? The labels only talk about perennial weeds🤷‍♂️ tia

    Winter Beans Pre-Em

    So Blackgrass, Cleavers and Charlock are the main issues. For Blackgrass, Kerb is the only effective option. And needs to be pre-em? (Blackgrass isnt awful) How well would a Nirvana work on Cleavers? Could I get away with dropping the rate of Nirvana and boosting with some straight Pend and...

    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...

    Which OSR pesticides /insecticides have been banned from use by uk farmers?

    I ask the above as now not farming myself I have become ignorant of what has been banned. I only ask as I wish to find out from my Canadian farming contact if they had any similar chemicals banned. I appreciate they only seed spring seeded OSR /canola . Thank you
