Diversity the key to protecting critical herbicide.. "We must diversify glyphosate use to preserve this precious herbicide for future harvests and future generations," he said... "An estimated 50 million hectares of the world's best crop land - including 34 million hectares in the US - is infested with glyphosate resistant weeds, and these weeds are often also resistant to other herbicides - posing a threat to global food production," Professor Powles said...

Grains research enters a new era.. The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) has begun delivering on its pledge to secure the future viability of grain production in Queensland and New South Wales... With research suggesting that the majority of current farming systems are dramatically underachieving on water use efficiency, the GRDC is co-funding the innovative new project aimed at better understanding how northern farming systems can be improved to boost productivity and profitability...

Herbicide hangover troubles crop selection.. Farming in Victoria's Mallee region, Rohan Mott was more than happy with his first crop of Compass barley, which yielded four tonnes per hectare in November from only 125 millimetres of growing-season rainfall... At Turriff East, in north-western Victoria, the Motts are making good use of the family's on-farm storage complex to provide their own segregation while working to direct-market the crop with a malting company and other contacts...

His trials at Dalwallinu, Merredin and Mullewa in 2012 and 2013 demonstrated that some wheat varieties could establish well when sown to a depth of 70-100mm... But establishment across all sites was reduced by between 17 and 61 per cent with deep sowing, compared to establishment from a sowing depth of 50mm (especially in varieties with short coleoptiles and on loamy soil)... At the North Miling site, establishment was similar for shallow (28mm) and 'normal' (52mm) sowing depths, but deep sowing to a depth of 119mm reduced establishment by between 22 and 45 per cent for a range of wheat varieties...

Long-term strategy needed for brome grass control.. Control of brome grass is becoming increasingly difficult throughout south-eastern Australia's cropping zone due to high herbicide resistance, increasing seed dormancy and spread of the weed from its traditional low rainfall area to new regions... GRDC-funded research by the University of Adelaide is investigating methods to effectively manage brome grass without heavy reliance on herbicides...

Mark Pearce is eager to use his revamped chaff cart this season to manage herbicide-resistant weeds: the weed burden has increased in its two-year absence.. Mark Pearce has been forced to replace chemical herbicides with a combination of tools and tactics to counter herbicide resistance.. Part of the plan to speed up harvest and get in before weeds start to shed seed has been the purchase of a new header, which Mark says will reduce his harvest time by two weeks...
