around critical timing. A key part is seed bed preparation. The most successful crops Clinton sees are the ones where, after initial spraying and cultivation, the seedbed is left for 4-6 weeks before sowing. A ‘stale’ seedbed provides time for any particularly persistent weeds to re-emerge

threshold for grass grub is two grubs per spade square. Well before sowing, take a garden spade and dig ten sample squares to the depth of the spade blade in a diagonal across the paddock. Sift through the soil and if an average of more than two grubs per sample is found treat with an effective seed
