Manage your OSR harvest for the most reliable results this season with a performance-proven modern Roundup

Today’s oilseed rape crops require the most careful pre-harvest glyphosate management for the greatest reliability and value. Thicker-stemmed, better-branched hybrids grown at lower seed rates and with stay-green agronomy need particular harvest management care; especially with later-maturing varieties and chancy weather. As well as using modern Roundup formulations proven to deliver the most consistent performance under challenging conditions, spray timing needs to be matched to crop structure.

The use of RoundUp under BPS, 2017 in Fallow Land with particular reference to Black-grass

The timing of glyphosate application to Black-grass was studied in detail under previous EU Set-aside rules, where pesticide application timings were restricted by calendar dates. Under the Basic Payment Scheme, (BPS) since 2015 there is no requirement for set-aside but there are situations where land is left non-cropped both as Fallow land under the Crop Diversification Rule and as Ecological Focus Areas, (EFA) under the Greening component of the BPS.
