Glyphosate Stewardship

With the 2023 harvest drawing to a close, VI Champion and Buckinghamshire farmer, Richard Heady (@HeadysFarm) explains the need for the careful use of glyphosate to minimise resistance pressure and to protect water courses. Glyphosate can be a useful tool to clean up autumn weed infestations, particularly in the fight against blackgrass.
