Kenso Agcare  explains that annual grasses including annual ryegrass, brome grass, barley grass and silver grass are major components of annual pastures in cereal/pasture rotation.

Grass seed control with Glyphosate products such as Ken-Up Dry 680 herbicides, Ken-Up Gold 500, Ken-Up 450 CT or Paraken 250 herbicides can improve the grazing value of pasture and reduce the weed seed burden for next year’s crop.

Grazing value is increased, as proteins in the plant are retained in the standing plant tissue rather than lost to the seed head.

Also, there will be a reduction in vegetable matter in wool samples as the grass seed numbers are reduced and seed awns are softer. With the onset of resistant grasses, pasture topping achieves valuable grass seed reduction for next year’s crops.
