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...

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...
