Mr Congreve said planning a coordinated and effective strategy to control in-crop and fallow weeds, particularly problem grassy weeds, would help growers maximise crop yields while delaying the development of resistance on the farm... The second webinar on December 10 will address the latest research on barnyard grass management through the experience of respected industry experts Tony Cook from NSW Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) and Michael Widderick and Jeff Werth from the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF Queensland) who have been extensively studying the ecology, evolution of resistance and management of barnyard grass in fallow and summer crops... Caption: Mark Congreve, Senior Consultant ICAN says planning a coordinated and effective in-crop strategy to control weeds, particularly problem grassy weeds, would help growers maximise crop yields while reducing the likelihood of developing a herbicide resistance problem on-farm...

Weed control on non-crop areas outside the paddock and on the perimeter of crops can sometimes be overlooked... Weeds often invade from the perimeters of paddocks, so an important integrated weed management (IWM) tactic is to keep fencelines and paddock boundaries free of invading species... "Long term sustainable weed management requires an IWM strategy using a range of different tools, not just to manage the weeds that you can see but to prevent them getting into the paddock in the first place...

Achieving the balance will be discussed during a short Spray application in summer fallows webinar, supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)... "Changing weed species, changing climate patterns and the requirement for double knock applications using contact herbicides to control difficult weeds has seen a significant increase in summer fallow herbicide applications in most broadacre no-tillage farming systems in WA," he said... Understanding stubble and soil binding of pre-emergent herbicides used for ryegrass control in winter crops , December 13: This webinar will investigate the properties of key pre-emergent herbicides pyroxasulfone (Sakura ), prosulfocarb/s-metolachlor (Boxer Gold), dimethenamid-P (Outlook ) and trifluralin (Treflan ) and how the herbicide properties affect stubble binding and soil mobility...

The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) will help growers and advisors tackle the challenge of winter weed control next month through a series of informative webinars... The webinar will continue to build on the library of previous GRDC webinars focusing on key problem weeds and will cover the ecology of wild oats, the latest on herbicide resistance and discuss how this information can be used to develop effective management strategies... Consultant Andrew Somervaille who has been conducting field trials with glyphosate since its introduction in Australia will join the webinar to explain the different glyphosate salts and how they enter the leaf; behaviour in the spray tank and which adjuvant system is preferred for each formulation...

Conducted by Independent Consultants Australia Network (ICAN) and sponsored by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), the webinars will focus on a different topic each week: managing fleabane in zero-till farming systems, spray application in summer fallows, and understanding stubble and soil binding of pre-emergent herbicides used for ryegrass control in winter crops... ICAN's Mark Congreve says advisers can simply use their laptop or personal computer to link into each 30 minute presentation from industry experts in their field, after which webinar participants can ask the presenters questions... Caption: Dr Dale Shaner (left), from Colorado in the USA, will be the presenter of a webinar on understanding stubble and soil binding of pre-emergent herbicides used for ryegrass control in winter crops...
