Catalogue: Ground Cover
University of Adelaide associate professor Dr Gurjeet Gill says, at this stage, the weeds are mostly confined to roadsides and some horticultural areas, such as the Barossa and Riverland, but it is likely they will soon invade cropping paddocks... "The seeds of these weeds are readily dispersed by wind, so it's just a matter of time until they are found in crops," Dr Gill says... "In cases such as FTR and windmill grass where herbicide options are limited, integrated weed management principles should be applied to maximise control (see box, right)...

"The seeds of these weeds are readily dispersed by wind, so it's just a matter of time until they are found in crops," Dr Gill says... In a study at Roseworthy in 2014, FTR produced seven tonnes per hectare of biomass over summer, which was six times more than windmill grass...

Harvest weed seed control plays an important role in stopping weed seeds from entering the soil... Addressing growers and advisers at the GRDC Updates earlier this year, Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) principal research scientist Dr Michael Widderick said while resistance to one mode of action herbicide was extremely common in the north, many cases of multiple or cross resistance was also now occurring particularly in problem weeds like wild oats... Caption: Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) principal research scientist Dr Michael Widderick emphasised the importance of driving down the weed seed bank for effective herbicide resistance management during a presentation to the GRDC Northern Grains Research Update at Goondwindi earlier this year...

Zero till farming and wind-blown seed dispersal, coupled with glyphosate resistance has seen fleabane develop as one of the major broadleaf weeds of northern cropping systems... Effective management of fleabane will require a combination of good agronomy; non-herbicide tactics (e.g. crop competition) and strategic use of herbicides... Various products containing 2,4-D + picloram - Knockdown and residual control in fallow prior to planting winter cereals in mixtures with glyphosate (NSW & Qld only)...
