Weeds: How to keep on top of them as harvest season closes

Rural Exchange 11/02/2018

While it may feel a bit early to be talking the end of the season when it comes to farming it's always best to forward plan and think ahead.

As harvest time draws to a close, farmers are now starting to think about winter crops. 

Our 'weed man', BASF agri-chemicals technical field services manager, Grant Hagerty, joined Rural Exchange to discuss how to keep on top of weeds.

Mr Hagerty says farmers need to keep an eye on weeds.

What happened last year impacts on what happens next year.

"In keeping abreast of what products worked or what programmes worked means you have an easier job next year," he said.

"It's just a matter of looking at what worked and what weeds are on the farm."
