Black-grass mapping

When we were spraying T2’s in the wheat crop we drop a pin in the Trimble FMX guidance system which has the facility to map any in field features. We can then go back with the sprayer and glyphosate off any yield-robbing patches of black-grass.  If the weed patches aren’t too bad we’ll hand rouge them.

Spraying off black-grass in a standing crop has had the biggest impact on our strategy to reduce black-grass on the farm.
