Weed control in field vegetable crops is essential to retain yield and quality and prevent issues at harvesting. Effective weed control also prevents unwanted build-up of weed seed in the soil seedbank for future crops in the rotation. Integrating chemical and non-chemical options can help to prevent herbicide resistance and ensure existing chemistry can be effective for as long as possible. This webinar was led by Ben Barnes and Lynn Tatnell of ADAS for an in-depth session exploring how to achieve effective weed control in vegetable production. In this webinar we covered:

  • Chemical weed control options- any new options
  • Alternative weed control – novel methods and newer techniques
  • Rotational weed management
