Apply herbicides to yellow bristle grass before seed heads ripen.
Avoid moving stock from infested to clean paddocks – seeds can survive in dung. Don’t make hay from paddocks heavily infested with yellow bristle grass or other summer growing grass weeds –¬† the seeds can survive in hay. In contrast, yellow bristle grass seeds are highly unlikely to survive in well made silage and wrapped baleage.
