Grain growers are urged to have the sprayer ready to go and to spray summer weeds early in order to conserve moisture and increase the yield potential of future crops.

A new Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) fact sheet, Summer Fallow Spraying, gives growers and advisers the latest information for spray application and quality resulting from GRDC-funded research.

The fact sheet has been compiled by well-known spray application specialist, Bill Gordon, and includes tips such as:

  • Plan to control summer weeds as early as possible.
  • Have the machine ready to go.
  • Select an appropriate application volume for the product and situation.
  • Choose the coarsest spray quality that will provide efficacy with the products selected.
  • Monitor and record application details and weather parameters.
