The experiment was designed to determine:

2. The phenological development stage at which barley grass is most susceptible to the common spraytopping herbicides.
3. The effects of early (pasture manipulation) and late (spraytopping) herbicide application on pasture production, pasture quality, barley grass control, medic growth and medic seed set.
4. The effects the herbicides have on the grain yield of a following cereal crop.
