Planning to drill winter wheat into this ex-Italian ryegrass, really reluctant to plough as the soil looks good however, as you can see, there is a large seed bank waiting to germinate. Is another pass with glyphosate enough to sort the problem? The other option is to wholecrop it but I’d prefer to combine if possible.

I've a rye grass problem in some fields and my solution is to keep shallow discing. May do 3/4 passes before planting but still the bloody stuff keeps coming up. I am winning though, but have crops that out grow rye grass, moha being my favourite.🤷


Cultivating must go and sit in the corner!

How long you got , I would run a ring roll over it and wait , spray a few days after you drilled

We’ve direct drilled into ryegrass leys for 5 years when the seed comes for this year Monday hopefully it will be 6th time. I did one field oats last year with very little chemistry to kill ryegrass in oats I ended up with this crop below which was fairly dirty as you can see there is a row every 6 metres where the swaths of silage were. We have done wheat all the other times and as far as I can remember I’m pretty sure I’ve not seen one piece of ryegrass in the crop after spraying Atlantis. We drill then I spray glyphosate and pre em between 7 and 10 days after depending on the weather and how brave I’m feeling

There is nothing that will stop ryegrass in oats anyway, you have a moderate infestation there which probably did no real harm to yield.

I have had good experience with Broadway star/Palio on ryegrasses in the past but I know some people have not. Atlantis/Pacifica/Monolith may be better in your situation, it is hard to know.
