herbicide x species matrix demonstration
The demonstration is to highlight a range of pre-sowing, early post- em and knockdowns across a range of crop species.
At the time of the early-season field walk, late applications had not yet been made.
The site is mainly annual ryegrass with minimal broadleaf weeds.
No data was available at the time of writing the article but there are good visual responses from the pre-sowing treatment.
This demonstration is designed to showcase the effects of several different herbicide treatments across a range of crop types, including crop safety if selective herbicides are applied on non-target crop species.
This demonstration is non-replicated but should provide a very interactive experience and open discussion of the options available to growers. It is an interesting demonstration of the possible effects of non-target use of herbicides.

The trial is not replicated but consists of 8 different species which were cross plotted with 10 pre-sowing treatments, 9 early post sowing treatments and 13 late spray treatments which will be available for viewing at the Spring Field Day.
Seeding and pre-sowing spraying were carried out on 20/05/21.
Early post-em treatments were applied on Friday 2/7/21 under ideal spraying conditions.
Crop growth stages at application were as follows:
