Spray out and crop protectionSpray out and crop protection

As we head into autumn, its time to consider your spray out plan to ensure successful establishment of new crops or pasture.

Here are some tips to consider:

» When spraying out an old crop or pasture in readiness for planting a new one, walk the area to assess the grass and broadleaf weed species. This helps with product choice and dose rate. If targeting perennial weeds, don’t compromise on the glyphosate dose rate.

» Some glyphosates may require additional adjuvants and buffers. Using the correct broadleaf weed companion herbicide (spike) helps control broadleaf weeds. Note, many broadleaf weed spikes have a residual effect on the following crop.

» When using glyphosate in hard water areas, note the cation impurities in the water that can lock up glyphosate and cause some of it to be inactive. This is particularly a problem when using spray water from a borehole, creek or filling the sprayer with water stored in metal tanks over a long period of time. Remedy by adding a water conditioner such as X-Change. Add X-Change to the water before glyphosate.

Getting the spray-out right

When planning to plant a new crop or re-grass, at least one spray-out of the old crop or pasture should be undertaken. This means spraying the paddock to kill all remaining foliage of the old crop and weeds to allow the establishment of the new crop without having to compete with large established weeds already in-situ.

Brassica ManagementBrassica Management

In brassica crops, monitor for weeds and pests in late-sown brassica crops and treat accordingly. Look for invasion by white butterfly, diamond back moth and aphids that can devastate crops over summer. Remember Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and beneficial insects help reduce pest numbers so factor this in when selecting an insecticide.
