Targeted, early weed and pest control is essential when growing maize. Most hybrid varieties are endowed with high yield potential but are poor competitors against weeds or pests. To give your crop every chance of success planning is essential.
The benefits of early weed control:
- It eliminates competition for light, nutrients and moisture, giving your crop the opportunity to establish.
- It protects the palatability and nutritional potential of your crop.
- It substantially curtails opportunities for pests to establish themselves in your crop.
