Get in quick with Aptitude!

FMC Crop Protection’s post-emergent herbicide, Aptitude, received a warm welcome by grain growers on Yorke Peninsula last year. YP AG recommends Aptitude for weeds such as bifora, bedstraw, mustard and lincoln weed. Aptitude contains a patented mix of carfentrazone (Group G) and metribuzin (Group C). “We already knew how effective and fast acting carfentrazone could be and, combined with metribuzin, we were expecting the new product to be very effective,” a YP AG spokesperson said.

A RACER-gainst time!

WITH the continued increase of annual ryegrass resistance to Group A herbicides there is no time for complacency, according to YP AG’s Darryn Schilling.

The use of an integrated weed-management strategy using herbicides like RACER can form an important part of this.

RACER is an alternative Group A DIM herbicide, containing the active butroxydim.

Use Sharpen for broadleaf control before sowing legumes

IT has been almost a month since the rain around Anzac Day, when northern and southern Yorke Peninsula received 40-80mm. Farmers in these areas are now busily planting lentils and contending with large broadleaf weeds like milk thistle, radish and marshmallow before the crop goes in.

Agrifac Update | Troy Johnson

Agrifac Spraying Systems going to the next level! Recently Bradley Twartz and myself attended the Agrifac factory in Holland to witness the development of two exciting new spraying systems that will be available on their sprayers in the near future. The systems referred to as StrictSpray Plus (SSP) and DynamicDose Plus (DDP) are in the final stages of development and will offer precise spraying of paddocks. These systems will have the ability to target individual weeds with a precise dose of product based on task maps created from remote sensing and other precision ag data sets. Liquid fertilizer will also be able to be applied in the same manner allowing products like Easy N to be applied at multiple rates over a paddock based on its nitrogen requirements. The nozzles will be controlled individually by a laptop with the flow rate varied according to dose requirements electronically. This system will also be able to allow for turn compensation and boom yaw. YPAG will be taking delivery of a machine fitted with this technology in July and will be involved in the final assessment and implementation of these new systems. We are looking forward to demonstrating this technology in the near future especially at our upcoming trial days and the Yorke Peninsula Field days!
