    Is this worth spraying out of my wheat now? I was hoping a good frost would suppress it until spring. Half a litre of fluroxypyr should bowl it over but I'd rather leave it as a companion crop. I've had this before and the swaths can lift with the root biomass.

    Gut feeling is that is too thick and needs taking out. No doubt there will be many taking a different view point.

  3. Spray the wheat out probably best.

  4. Get rid of it, the wheat is not going to enjoy competing with that. Poor little sods with just 2 ickle leaves, all open as well as Claydon drilled. Zap it out and give the wheat half a chance to get going and sort itself before February.

    I think I would just monitor it, if the cool temps stop with us then its not going to grow much until spring, then take it out, as you say a good companion and ground cover crop, which may help to suppress other weeds, the leading Tyne has cleared a path for the wheat.

  6. the wheat will be moving to dormancy with the low temperatures
    the ground cover will only do good
    blw do not cause yield loss till gs 31
