Weeds research

Plain text source: 
Highly respected throughout the Australian weed scientists' community, the team conducts valuable research into best-practice weed management for central and southern Queensland agriculture, weed ecology and the safe use of herbicides in crops... Over the past decade, the team has quantified risks associated with the development of herbicide resistance in weeds of the northern grain region, and has made recommendations for avoiding and managing weed populations resistant to important herbicides... Unlike previous models produced in other parts of Australia, the model enables simulation of a wide variety of weed species, agronomic practices, and weed control tactics, to help understand and explain the impact of agricultural decision making on the rate of evolution of herbicide resistance...
