BROME GRASS CONTROL SUPPORT: Grain growers challenged with the task of controlling the problematic brome grass are being provided with a new resource to support their weed management strategies... GRDC Southern Regional Panel chair David Shannon says brome grass competing early in wheat at a density of 100 plants per square metre can reduce yields by as much as 30 to 50 per cent. ".. The well-adapted weed has proliferated in the past decade, due to the absence of effective herbicides for its control in cereals, intensification of cropping systems, especially wheat on wheat, and the introduction of conservation tillage," Mr Shannon said.
