    grass to barley

    is it possible or wise to simply spray off( with glyphosphate) an old grass ley and direct drill spring barley.
    Would it be better to spray and break up the old turf by some means

    Thanks for asking this question as I in the same position.

    After the success of dd wheat into old permenant grass, we have a bit of barley to do.

    Dont know if barley will be as successful?

    seems to work for us, if a small seed like a brassica can work there's no reason why barley shouldn't.

    We tend to spray & drill 2 weeks later.
