19/08/2014: August & September. Time to watch out for broad-leafed weeds

Now is the time of year that broad-leafed weeds can interfere with the grass crop from your fields and paddocks. Perennial broad-leafed weeds generally reproduce through seed, but also through various vegetative structures. Many only set seed in the second year, and some may die back after setting seed (biennials). Weed management can therefore be aimed at one or more phases of the life cycle such as prevention of seed setting or exhaustion of underground roots.

The specialists at Brooke Estate Management can advise on and apply the most effective treatment for broad-leafed weeds to make sure that your feed crop is protected. Call us today, or click in the header of any page to send us an email if your fields and paddocks are blighted by:
