I have read the label. 120 days for cereals and maize. a year for all other crops. Anybody else risked it/ got away with it with any crops? I guess it's the picloram that's the problem rather than the Arylex?


If oats are ok then would spring barley not be ok too?
Would you not get away with it if the grown was worked up well before drilling, or even ploughed. I wouldn't want to drill straight into the failed rape anyway.

have been thinking the same after walkround with agrono on thursday. his suggestion was all broad leaved crops were a no-no and oats the way forward.
I won’t be drilling cereals. It will be fallowed or ploughed and a break crop put in. It’s only a small acreage thankfully but it still hurts.
