Welcome back to our first episode for 2021!

Late summer is the key time for an on-farm velvetleaf search and destroy mission…this season’s plants will be well established, but won’t have set seed yet. AgResearch Weed Scientist Dr Trevor James chats to Alison Stewart about ongoing research into velvetleaf management and reminds growers what to look for when checking crops.
