Finnish term or phrase: juolavehnän torjunta rehuohra-, rehukaura-,rypsi- ja rapsiviljelyksiltä ennen pu
Juolavehnä has many names - couch grass, common couch, twitch etc etc. Couch is most common in the UK, but in the US? Another problem is Rypsi and Rapsi - the former is rapeseed, the latter has many names again so don't know which to choose... the latin names are Brassica Rapa and Brassica Napus, wikipedia does give the alternatives.

American version if poss?? Can anybody help?
