Controlling ryegrass along fence lines locations

To investigate the effectiveness of different herbicide mixes at controlling glyphosate resistant ryegrass along fencelines.

Key messages
  • Glyphosate alone at high rates produced poor control of annual ryegrass along the fenceline.
  • Spray.seed + Diuron, Round up Power Max + Diuron and Alliance all gave good control of the glyphosate resistant annual ryegrass.
