Check pastures for Tasmanian grass grub damage
Region: Gisborne, Hawke’s Bay
In areas where Tasmanian grass grub can be a problem, damage may be seen. Check pastures particularly around stock camps and assess numbers to determine if insecticidal control is warranted. Bear in mind feeding is slowing and with spring growth approaching, control may only be warranted if it is required to preserve pasture plants.
Look forÂ seedling broadleaved weeds
Check established pastures for seedling broadleaved weeds such as nodding or winged thistle, ragwort or other troublesome weed and apply herbicide as necessary to the young weeds once clover growth has slowed.Social tagging: Broadleaved weed > Clover > Ragwort > Tasmanian grass grub > Thistle
