AgPest Alert – 16th July

Check for broadleaved weeds

Region: All NZ

Check established pastures for broadleaved weeds and apply herbicide as necessary once clover growth has slowed.


Check for 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.
