Vetches regrowth ability

Hi,

Just wondering if I sowed vetches early autumn (aug/sept) and mowed and baled/clamped (April).

If I direct drilled pea and barley mix would the mowed off vetches regrow?

Same question for autumn sown triticale. Mowed (after stem extension but before flag leaf) and baled/clamped, pea mix direct drilled into stubble.

Farming in Northern Ireland so risk of slots drying out is pretty low.

Thanks

If you want a good plant in the spring, hairy vetch is what you want. I did exactly what you are describing last year and was pleased with the results. It never grew back much after silaging though.
 

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.
