Chemical weed control in canola
Download Complete Bulletin
Canola is an important break and cash crop in Western Australia. To provide maximum benefit to the following crop, while maximising the yield potential of canola, growers should aim to control weeds as early as possible. There is a wide suite of chemicals available for use before sowing, before crop emergence, in-crop and near maturity, which along with cultural techniques provide opportunities for effective weed control in canola. Managing summer weeds is important to avoid seeding delays, conserve nutrients and moisture for the canola crop to use during the growing season, and minimise potential green bridge and allelopathic impacts.
