Brome grass needs multi-pronged attack.. When herbicides are put under pressure resistant weeds are quickly selected for, such as this population of brome grass... Break crops need to be employed with other management tools including: high seeding rates at sowing for improved competition with brome grass plants; effective herbicide choice with correct rates, droplet size and timing; regular resistance testing if herbicide failure is suspected; retaining or sourcing clean seed for future use; and monitoring brome grass levels in all paddocks while planning future use...
