Controlling wild oats locations
Aims

To evaluate the effect of long term management strategies on the wild oat seedbank and measure the efficacy of various control techniques.

Key messages
  • One year of full wild oat control reduced the wild oat seedbank to 8 seeds per square metre in 2010.
  • A selective post emergent herbicide or an early hay cut were the most effective strategies for reducing the wild oat seedbank.
