Success for Resilient & Ready field days
Earlier this autumn the LEAF and Corteva Agriscience Resilient and Ready team invited farmers and other industry experts to two on-farm events in Hampshire and Aberdeenshire, hosted by our Resilient and Ready farmers.

Speakers included the host farmers, representatives from LEAF and Corteva Agriscience, industry professionals, and LEAF demonstration farmers to examine what farming will look like in 30 years time.

Thank you to all who attended for contributing to interesting discussions about the best tools, techniques and strategies to future proof your business.

Growing oilseed rape this season?
Renowned herbicides such as AstroKerb® and Kerb® Flo 500 contain propyzamide and are the cornerstones of many herbicide programmes. They are key to controlling grassweeds, especially blackgrass and ryegrass in oilseed rape, and with no known resistance, propyzamide can help manage and reduce the burden of these weeds across the rotation. 

After a heavy rain event there is a risk of soil active herbicides attached to soil particles, getting washed into surface water.  Appropriate planning, management and adoption of stewardship practices must be followed to mitigate this risk. Oilseed rape growers are urged to consider the actions they can take to protect watercourses. Field selection, tramline placement and buffer zones can all play an important role in effective risk mitigation.
