As part of the BASF panel of Arable Weed Control experts Philip will advise on cultivations and drilling techniques specifically targeting the control of various key weeds, for example how they respond to soil disturbance, where the weed seed bank needs to be for best control [inverted/buried, or in the upper zone of maximum residual herbicide efficacy], plus the ideal scenarios for effective control – delayed drilling, spring cropping, other cultivations and residue/canopy management options, ideal cropping rotation sequences, etc.
