A new concept: The use of cover crop in blackgrass control

Previous research has clearly shown that spring cropping can have a dramatic effect on the reduction of blackgrass populations.

The problem has been that blackgrass can be the dominant weed on heavy, difficult soils into which it can often be hard to establish a spring crop.

AGROVISTA HAS EVALUATED SPECIFIC COVER CROP MIXES WHICH

  • Create a platform to ease spring drilling, allowing a third crop
  • Are allowed as part of the EFA
  • Help with soil structure, to allow better water infiltration and soil drying
  • Help with increasing organic matter, soil micro-flora and fauna

WHAT DOES THE AGROVISTA RANGE OF SPECIALIST COVER CROPS CONSIST OF?

  • Avena Strigosa. But unique varieties, these are crucial to ensure no volunteer carry-over and easy kill of the cover crop
  • Vetches (which can count towards EFA)
  • Berseem Clover. This specific variety is excellent for early germination and maximum root impact
