Control of annual meadow grass with direct drilling of grassland

Jaarverslag, Proefstation voor de Rundveehouderij, Schapenhouderij en Paardenhouderij: 38-41
Control of annual meadow grass with direct drilling of grassland
In trials on clay soil and sedge peat soil assessed in May and June 1984, resp., direct drilling of grass into swards killed with desiccant gave 63 and 56% Lolium perenne and 37 and 41% Poa annua in swards on the 2 soil types, resp., where no additional herbicide was used, and 94 and 86% L. perenne and 1 and 13% P. annua where 5 litres Tramat (ethofumesate)/ha was applied at drilling and 2.5 litres/ha in spring; similar results were obtained where the autumn application was delayed until L. perenne had 3-4 leaves. In further trials in 1985-86 on clay soil and sandy soil, populations of P. annua were low and treatment had little effect on yield and none on digestibility or nutritive value.
