Paddock-scale trials will demonstrate to growers the suitability and effectiveness of a number of HWSC measures, using commercial equipment to highlight the potential of these management practices to complement large scale trials... "Firstly, we want to focus on how we can change crop maturity and crop physiology to match the requirements to be able to use harvest weed seed techniques," Mr Vague said... "Then, we can go into the paddock, use the big machinery, talk to the famers and actually refine how those techniques are going to be worked into their system, and how beneficial to profit and economics they're going to be at the end of the year."..

There is an urgent need for additional weed control options... The study has identified the potential opportunity to collect and remove seed of several weed species during the harvest of winter grown wheat and chickpea crops in the northern cropping region... Results from the weed seed samples currently being processed will provide information on just how much seed is being returned...

Adopting a zero weed seed set policy is a critical component of an integrated management strategy needed to combat wild radish, which has been declared a serious emerging issue in the southern cropping region... "The big message to advisers and growers is manyfold - resistance testing, a thorough understanding of why and how radish has become problematic in any one paddock, and a through appreciation that the seed bank must be managed and a zero seed set policy adopted are all essential components to combating wild radish," Mr Campbell said... Mr Campbell said that over the past 12 years in WA, where intensive cropping systems are more prevalent than in the south, herbicide resistance in wild radish had become more widespread and control notably more complex with the rapid loss of base chemistries...

With herbicide-resistant weeds an increasing problem across the northern grains region, experts are looking to Western Australia for alternative methods of controlling weeds... Maurie Street from the Grain Orana Alliance says herbicide resistance is an increasing problem in northern grains production because many farming systems have moved to continuous cropping with nearly 100 per cent reliance on herbicides for weed control... Windrow burning is cheap and easy to set up, allowing growers to test the 'proof of concept' on their farms before making large investments in chaff carts or seed destructors "We need to start looking at new techniques for weed control - we shouldn't be expecting or relying on new herbicides to fix the problem," Mr Street says...
