The Cleancrop™ Brassica System is a simple weed management system which eradicates a range of key problem weeds, commonly found in brassica crops throughout New Zealand. These weeds compete with your brassica crop decreasing yield production. It’s time to take back control of your crop this spring.
The CleancropTM Brassica System is an integrated weed management programme that offers excellent control of key problem weeds in brassica.
Cleancrop brassica cultivars containing the CleancropTM Brassica System technology have been bred from the very successful Plant and Food Research Ltd/PGG Wrightson Seeds joint breeding programme.
Forgae Innovations Ltd. in addition to their tolerance to Telar herbicide, each cultivar, depending on species has improved forage yield, palatability, disease and insect tolerance.
The CleancropTM Brassica System must be implemented on-farm in accordance with best Practice Guide and stewardship plan. Developed by PGG Wrightson Seeds and DuPont, this programme is designed to optimise the on-farm performance of the CleancropTM Brassica System.
The Cleancrop™ Brassica System can be used where a simple weed control programme is required that controls
a wide range of historically difficult-to-control weeds in brassica crops.
