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...

Conference puts weeds challenge on stage.. Research by Mike Ashworth, from the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative, and research by Dr Catherine Borger, from the Department of Agriculture and Food, WA, were seen as notable examples of the increasing sophistication and potential for innovative weed control, but also of the mounting challenges... Mr Ashworth's research has shown that wild radish has the potential to evade harvest weed seed management if this tactic is overused because it is likely to inadvertently select for wild radish with earlier flowering dates...

A range of options is needed for effective summer weed control.. All these summer weeds have populations that are either resistant to glyphosate or naturally tolerant of glyphosate (such as feathertop Rhodes grass).. The weeds in question - awnless barnyard grass, feathertop Rhodes grass (FTR), windmill grass, liverseed grass, sowthistle and the notorious fleabane - are all a problem in summer fallows: "And all have populations either resistant to glyphosate or naturally tolerant to glyphosate (such as FTR)...
