Disc seeding systems and pre-emergent herbicides

Disc seeding systems and pre-emergent herbicides

Disc seeding system design and settings influence pre-emergent herbicide behaviour and can play a critical role in minimising crop damage.

Ideal set-up of disc seeding systems, to maximise weed control with pre-emergent herbicides whilst minimising crop damage, requires an understanding of how the products interact with the crop and the distribution of weed seeds in the seedbank, as well as knowledge of soil type, likely rainfall and surface residues. Using pre-emergent herbicides is not cut-and-dry!
