Project aims to tame wild radish impact in cropping regions

Plain text source: 
A Grains Research and Development Corporation "fast track project", instigated by the GRDC's southern Regional Cropping Solutions Networks (RCSN), aims to map the extent of herbicide resistance in wild radish and other broadleaf weeds and increase awareness about the increasing problem... Birchip Cropping Group (BCG) is undertaking the survey, trial and extension work in response to concerns raised about the spread of resistance in wild radish in the southern cropping region, brought to GRDC's attention through the RCSN in the low and medium rainfall zones... "As a consequence, growers have placed less emphasis on rotating their broadleaf herbicide groups, thereby increasing the potential for resistance to develop in weeds such as wild radish, Indian hedge mustard and turnip."..
