CRT SA : Winning Autumn Deals 2012
800mL/ha to 3L/ha and add up to 2L/ha of tri-allate to manage resistant annual ryegrass. The use of tri-allate effectively increased the performance of trifluralin by up to 30% depending on the resistance status of the annual ryegrass. Pre-emergent herbicides rise from the ashes This improves the uptake of the herbicide by germinating weeds. Whilst Sakura has been trialled in Australia for more than five years, there are a number of key points that need to be followed to ensure that it works to expectation, including: • The use of knife points and press wheels (research is being carried out around Australia on disc systems) • ensuring that product is not thrown into other sowing rows during sowing • no use of other coverage systems, such as harrows, when using press wheels. The use rate for Sakura is 118g/ha and application can be done up to three days before incorporation by sowing with narrow points and press wheels. This provides a useable level of flexibility for spraying and sowing of crops. Sakura can be leached from sandy soils after heavy rainfall. Whilst this reduces efficacy, there have been no reports of significant damage to wheat and triticale crops in the trials. Sakura is a very effective herbicide with control levels exceeding 90% in the majority of trial work carried out over the last five years for annual ryegrass and other weeds. As with all pre-emergent herbicides, moist soil at application and sowing will increase the effectiveness of this product. A range of mix partners can be used with Sakura including other pre-emergent and knock-down herbicides and some insecticides. Contact your local CRT agronomist for the latest information on Sakura and mixing partners for your area. Outlook Outlook, which is a Group K product containing dimethenamid-P, is the latest of the new pre- emergent herbicides and is still waiting on registration. Unlike Sakura and Boxer Gold, it will be registered firstly in canola and then, potentially, in pulse crops. The importance of this new product is that it will provide an alternate mode of action for the control of annual ryegrass outside cereal crops from a pre-emergent herbicide. This will provide long term benefits in maintaining the effectiveness of all the new pre-emergent herbicides when used in association with alternative methods of control. The suggested use rate for Outlook is 750mL-1L/ha.
