Long Term Rush Control
Making the most of your farm for business and the environment
Soft rush infestation is a problem for many land managers that is worsening as the climate changes. Rushes can take over grass/clover swards, with knock-on effects for livestock productivity and profit margins.
A variety of management practices can be used; this session will explore several of them in a range of situations, in order to identify how to effectively manage rushes in the long-term.
