Belkar gave groundsel a good headache last year and some I did on Friday afternoon was bending over yesterday. Last year the belkar and kerb mix gave better weed control overall here than Astrokerb. Most noticeable were poppies which were present at harvest in the Astrokerb treated crops. I’m using belkar mix this year.

Interesting that Belkar seems to control groundsel, at least in some degree, as its label does not mention it, and a company salesman I met at an open day last year told me that it definitely didn't touch it. That's what prompted my question.

Will Astrokerb kill small rosebay willow herb?

Only at cotyledon stage really. By the time the crop is big enough for Belkar ie 4 true leaves the groundsel is too big
