Mr Storrie says 82 confirmed cases of glyphosate-resistant annual ryegrass have been recorded in winter grain crops including wheat, canola and pulses from NSW to Western Australia. ".. This is the tip of the iceberg, as our most valuable herbicide, glyphosate, has been used for long enough to prime weed populations for resistance," Mr Storrie said. ".. If there is ryegrass still alive after two applications of glyphosate in a canola crop, you have a fair indication they are resistant, but it is a good idea to get a Quick-test@" done as well for suspected problem weeds from other crops and fallows," Mr Storrie said...

An army of grain growers is spreading out across Western Australia, kitted out with the latest weapons to fight herbicide resistance after attending a recent series of Integrated Weed Management (IWM) workshops in Moora, Wyalkatchem, Darkan, Nyabing, Green Range and Kendenup... Coordinated and presented by Andrew Storrie of Agronomo, the workshops highlighted the need to take action on weeds, and particularly seed banks, to delay the establishment of resistance and deal with it once it occurs. ".. We wanted growers to walk away with a greater understanding of how herbicide resistance develops and what they can do about it," Mr Storrie said. "..

Mr Storrie and John Cameron, of ICAN, have co-authored a new reference manual Summer Fallow Weed Management , published by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), which demonstrates how growers can reap a high return on investment from managing summer weeds... "If growers receive rainfall events of more than 10mm in coming weeks and have a history of fleabane in their district, they are likely to have fleabane germinating in their paddocks," Mr Storrie said... "GRDC funded trials conducted by the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) have shown that fleabane can most effectively be controlled when plants are at the rosette stage," he said...
