How do you prevent Jacobaea vulgaris?
Preventing is better than curing. Fighting Jacobaea vulgaris is very difficult, so it is important to ensure that the plant does not settle in the meadow. Good pasture management is necessary.
In the meadow
- Ensure a dense grass seed, which reduces the chance of establishment
- Prevent overbrowsing, retardation and inspection by machines
- Good soil fertility ensures a dense grass seed (reference to fertilizer)
- Good grass composition, Different grass species have different properties (reference to sowing)
In the roughage (hay and silage)
- Do not feed hay / silage containing Jacobaea vulgaris to horses or cattle
- Good control of the area of origin and quality of hay is necessary to prevent hay from brams and grasslands infected with Jacobaea vulgaris sprouts being fed as horses for horses.
- Request guarantees to the grower seller
