Blackgrass loses to ryegrass

A truly fantastic result!

This field was sown September 2017 and in spring was a mat of blackgrass with ryegrass plants poking through it.

We thought that it would be written off. However, two silage cuts, two applications of slurry and some hot weather later,  the dead stubble in the bottom is blackgrass and the ryegrass is romping away.

The field will be overseeded in the autumn to fill the gaps left by the blackgrass.
