Sheild is good on redshank & groundsill but the swedes need to be bigger than the redshank for best effect.

Redshank is the worst weed in brassicas nothing really touches it.lentagran post em with a touch of clomazone on small weeds is your best chance.a sharp hoe or well set up spring tine is as good as anything

Might it be possible to get an effect with Emerger? legal in carrots up to 2 true leaves of crop. Would be better applied as a pre-em though

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
