Soil is pretty remarkable stuff. It provides us with 95% of our food, helps regulate the earth’s atmosphere, and It's a bigger carbon sink than all the world's forests combined. In fact, it enables all life on this planet to exist. So why do we treat it like dirt? Guardian journalist Josh Toussaint-Strauss finds out how we’re destroying the earth's soil, but also discovers some of the progress we've made in the race to protect it.

Early moves to target wild oats

Growers and agronomists now face the dilemma of an early application to remove competition from emerged wild oats, or holding off to allow more weeds to germinate.

Syngenta grassweeds technical manager, Georgina Wood, urges Axial Pro treatment as soon as conditions allow, once weeds are actively growing.

“That offers the chance to control wild oats more cost effectively at lower rates, whilst there is still the flexibility to tailor application rates up to 0.82 l/ha for larger or over wintered weeds and difficult situations.

“The variability of crops and situations this season means decisions for appropriate Axial Pro rates and application techniques will need to be made on a field-by-field basis,” she advised.
