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...

Harvest the time to get on top of resistant weeds.. He says starting to tackle seed set at harvest is a good way of leading into a long-term strategy of methodically tackling weeds through pre-emergent herbicides and depleting seed banks... He said the last several years had seen growers around Australia's grain growing regions become more open to using non-chemical weed control options to tackle seed set at harvest, and taking a more flexible approach would be crucial for growers in implementing more sustainable cropping and weed-management strategies...
