General Info

Key Benefits 

  • Wild oats are the most competitive grass weed – more than twice as severe as black-grass
  • 1 plant/sqm can reduce winter cereal yields by 1.0 tonne/ha
  • Most wild oats germinate in the spring
  • Early wild oat control delivers significant yield increase

Crop Information

Wild oats are predominantly spring germinating. Winter cereal crops drilled later may eliminate many of the early autumn germinating wild oats, but the flush of spring germinators must still be controlled. Smaller spring germinating wild oats offer a greater opportunity for highly effective control.

Crops Max individual dose (L/ha) Max number of applications Latest timing of application
Wheat 0.25 One per crop Before flag leaf sheath extending stage (GS 41)
Durum wheat, rye and triticale 0.25 One per crop Before second node detectable stage (GS 32)

For all cropping information download the product label. 

Use Recommendations 

Smaller target weeds can be more effectively controlled using VISCOUNT®, potentially at a lower application rate. VISCOUNT® can be tank-mixed with SU herbicides when used at the full rate of 125ml/ha plus oil. DO NOT mix reduced rate VISCOUNT® with an SU. VISCOUNT® should not be mixed with hormone herbicides and must be used in sequence; wait 14 days from application of a hormone herbicide before using VISCOUNT®, or seven days after VISCOUNT® application before using a hormone herbicide
