Weeds in cereals

The composition of the weed flora in winter cereals has changed considerably in the last years. New leading weeds such as cranesbill species, thistles, bindweeds, field horsetail, common poppy or cornflower are difficult to control in crop rotation and must be given special attention in cereal production. Grass weeds like black grass and silkybent grass are developing more and more resistances against common herbicides. Mechanical weed control is a valuable tool and a good alternative to spraying.
