In this first episode of the popular Grassmanship video series, Nufarm new grass guru Chris Brenan tells Jamie Mackay how to get new pasture off to a flying start with the right herbicide programme.

If you've ever wondered whether you really need a post-emergent spray as well as an initial spray out for pasture renewal, this one's for you.

As Chris explains, at this stage of the process it's more to do with what you can't see than what you can, namely a lot of weed seed already sitting the soil waiting to grow as soon as it has the chance.

Check out what Chris has to say about weed burden, competition and the fight for resources in the first weeks of a new pasture's life.


You can watch Jamie, Chris and some pretty snappy drone shots in the video above.
