Pendimethalin, DFF, metribuzin, Aclonifen ( but not with DFF), clomazone, Isoxaben, flumioxazine. Depends on the weed spectrum

thanks for that Woodylane it's given me something to further research, alot of the residual effect of the products isn't as effective on the moss land and it was all rather weedy last year as the dry weather didn't help. I have used sencorex as a tank mix in the past but I think it was with lineron when dosaflow got banned I'm not sure if it would work with any of the above.

Anthem, hurricane pre em followed by shotput at 4 WBH is a good mix

yes dry weather is certainly a big issue and seems to be more commonplace these days around sowing dates. We have a fair bit of moss land here in west lancs. An Emerger, Stomp, Gamit mix works well.

following on from the pre-emergence where I applied emerger and stomp, the weeds I have left are mainly redshank and nettles. Has anyone used sencorex and defy (prosulfocarb) as a tank mix? I was considering sencorex at 200ml/ha at the 2-3 leaf stage what rate would you use the Defy at if it was mixed? Or is it just too strong and would they be better applied seperateley?

Five nature-recovery projects spanning nearly 100,000ha across the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, the Peak District, Norfolk and Somerset have been announced by the government and Natural England today (Thursday, May 26).

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
