systemic herbicide

Catalogue: GRDC Updates
Growers that have the weed seed bank under control will save herbicide costs; be able to use diverse tactics that would otherwise be cost prohibitive; and, by reducing the frequency of herbicide applications, will delay the onset of herbicide resistance... With any discussion on managing resistance we need to start with the basics and understand why we have the problem in the first place... Registration of high application rates by this technique may allow the control of resistant weeds that have survived a preceding application of a different mode of action...

Western Australian research investigating herbicide control of wild radish in cereal crops has highlighted the importance of good spraying conditions to maximise chemical uptake by the weed... It has also shown the importance of combining herbicides with different modes of action to maximise wild radish control, especially where herbicide resistance is suspected... "It is critical that, where possible, growers take advantage of good spraying conditions to maximise wild radish control to not only grow grain but also prevent radish seeds returning to the seed bank and further compounding the problem."..

Double-knock to beat glyphosate resistance.. Growers can reduce the spread of glyphosate-resistant weeds and sustain the effectiveness of glyphosate by using two or more herbicides as part of a double-knock strategy... Mr Cook said there were several suitable herbicide and non-herbicide options to choose from but recommended using a double-knock strategy, with two different groups of herbicides, such as Group L in conjunction with glyphosate (Group M) on glyphosate-susceptible plants...
