Aims

The aim of this trial was to determine the best options for controlling summer weeds using residual and knockdown herbicides with different adjuvants. 

Key messages

For most effective weed control of heliotrope an early applied residual herbicide such as Glean, Ally or Atrazine (be careful with plant backs for different crops!) is most effective. For grass and heliotrope control later in the season, weeds have to be sprayed before they are fully grown and flowering.
