Clayton Maize Herbicides 2020 – Product Guide
Posted on 13 May 2020
Clayton Plant Protection offers growers a broad range of 8 leading herbicides for maize crops this Spring. Getting good crop establishment to maximise yield relies on effective, early season weed control. Careful planning in terms of product choice and weed control management will help achieve the best start. Crucial to this (before crop protection) are good cultivations to ensure a firm, moist seedbed allowing better crop growth.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EARLY WEED CONTROL?
Early season weed control is vital for establishing maize crops successfully. Weeds compete with the emerging crop for light, soil moisture and valuable nutrients, so can severely damage the crop’s yield potential in the early stages. It is key to tackle weeds effectively both before crop emergence and in the first 7-10 days after crop emergence, to protect against these yield losses.
