RYEGRASS

IN WHEAT

Pre-Emergent and EPE Control of Annual Ryegrass in Wheat

Key Points

  • Mateno Complete is a new herbicide to be released for the 2022 growing season, and this trial will give growers the opportunity to see it in the field prior to release.

Aim

To demonstrate the weed control efficacy and crop safety of a range of herbicides in wheat when used as an IBS or EPE application.

Background

Mateno Complete is a new herbicide being released to the market by Bayer Crop Science in 2022. It can be applied at either the pre-sowing or early post emergent timing; and controls a number of key grass and broadleaf weeds including annual ryegrass, barley-grass, wild radish and capeweed. The site was identified in late autumn 2020 to ensure a suitable burden of annual ryegrass, and canola seed was spread pre-sowing to ensure broadleaf weed control could be demonstrated. At the early post-emergent application, 572 plants per m2 of annual ryegrass and 197 plants per m2 of volunteer canola was counted in the untreated plots.
