Morava vetch sown in mid-April was an effective option for weed control by brown manuring.. Field pea varieties sown in mid-May were suitable for both brown manuring and crop-topping.. NSW DPI research agronomist Luke Gaynor says there is a clear choice to make when brown manuring - either spray out the legume in early spring at the very early flat pod growth stage or wait until plants reach peak biomass to help maximise nitrogen fixation...

The results of the experiments have given Jeff the confidence to realise that he does have a viable, cost-effective alternative knockdown herbicide to glyphosate... Double knockdown (T 2.2b, page 128) Weather permitting, a double knockdown is implemented on resistant ryegrass paddocks prior to sowing using two non-selective herbicides (glyphosate followed by paraquat + diquat or paraquat, the choice being dependent upon the range of weeds present)... Helpful advice The Grays still enjoy the challenges and can see that they have made enough progress to feel they are being successful in managing a serious annual ryegrass problem...

Pulse industry authorities, supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), say crop-topping too early can affect pulse grain quality and potentially result in higher visible mould on grain... Pulse Australia's Wayne Hawthorne says research by the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) indicates that timing of crop-topping may be important in reducing the risk of mould in pulses... Caption: Pulse Australia's Wayne Hawthorne, pictured at a recent GRDC grains research Update at Kadina in SA, says research by the SA Research and Development Institute has shown that crop-topping too early can affect pulse grain quality...

Stewart Hamilton, pictured with his workmate Wal, looks to the family's hay enterprise for weed control... Stewart Hamilton says that growing hay - field peas, ryegrass and oats - as a break crop in sequence with their grain crops has allowed them to eliminate almost all weeds from infested paddocks, lifting whole-farm productivity and profitability... Stewart says that using this approach when faced with a dry start to the season has improved germination in their hay crops, which, apart from boosting hay yields, has also helped to further smother weed competition...

The benefits improve crop health and crop competitive ability against weeds and the effectiveness of pre-emergent herbicides... When used as a post-emergent product, little of the herbicide gets to the roots and the control of established weeds is often very poor... benefits arise when the weed is prevented from setting seed as there are no increases to the seedbank and, as a consequence, fewer weeds in the future...

Pulses can be utilised to control weeds, through green manuring, crop topping and good cultural practices... There is an increasing interest in pulses to provide a cheaper and more reliable source of N, and with brown manuring to maximise this benefit... The role and management of pulses in a southern NSW farming systems largely revolves around the individual needs of the farm, either to supply nitrogen, control weeds, harvest for grain, or a combination of all...
