I have a crop of winter wheat that is to spray with Pacifica Plus but there is some poor patches in the crop that i was going to DD some spring barley into as it is just for home feeding.
If i spray it now and plant barley in a couple of weeks will the Pacifica have any residual effect that will harm the spring barley

Personally I wouldn't anticipate any noticible negative affects to a following/replacement crop of spring barley from previous application of Pacifica Plus (particularly if soil is well cultivated). However worth noting the Pacifica Plus product label does state that only Winter Wheat and Winter barley are permitted as next crops following application at 0.5 kg/ha (WOSR ok following dose of 0.4 kg/ha).

I would not plant OSR after a strong SU. But spring wheat or barley would be favourite anyway as the Pacifica will only be partially effective.

So what's the minimum gap you gotta leave between an su and planting OSR in August time.thinking of maybe growing some osr for first time after this season wheat
