Morawa trials - wild radish herbicide demonstration 1 locations

To determine the level of wild radish control with older, more traditional herbicide mixes against some of the more robust and new herbicides.

Key messages
  • The older herbicide mixes of 25g/ha Logran and 25g/ha Logran + 800ml/ha LVE MCPA provided unsatisfactory levels of control whilst the new herbicides Velocity, Precept and the more robust Jaguar mixes provided far greater levels of control.
  • Whilst the Jaguar treatments gave slightly lower levels of control than the Precept or Velocity treatments, Jaguar has a heavier reliance on moisture and good growing conditions for better levels of control.
  • This could explain the slightly lower levels of control with the Jaguar treatments.
