Young Grass Weed Control
Why Spray Young Grass ?
Many farmers ignore spraying out weeds in young grass but there are many of good reasons why you should !
Medium to heavy infestation of weeds unsprayed causes many bare patches in pasture, The loss of production
from not spraying paddocks averages 3 weeks worth of grazing per hectare. For Dairy that equals about 75 milk solids per hectare for 3 weeks grazing and for $7.00 a Milk solid that equals $525.00 Per hectare.
For Lamb 3 weeks grazing equals 250 grams a day live weight x 20 lambs per hectare at $5.00 a kg carcase that equals $525.00 Per Hectare. With the costs of spraying being between $40-$85 a hectare we can see that spraying young grass paddocks is well worth it.( FIGURES ARE ONLY APPROXIMATIVE)
