Carrot weed control error


It has come to our notice that in the current August issue of The Vegetable Farmer there is an error in the article on Carrot Weed Control on page 21, concerning the rate of Hurricane SC used, which was 0.05 l/ha and not 1.8 l/ha as reported.

The paragraph in question should have read; The post-emergence options were all applied when the crop was at 1-2 true leaves and followed a standard pre-emergence treatment. Anthem at 3.3 l/ha, followed by Hurricane SC at 0.05 l/ha and then another Hurricane SC was the treatment which, according to Angela, “had hit the crop the most,” although it had also caused yellowing on most of the potato plants.’

We do apologise for any confusion this error may have caused.
