" GRDC Crop Updates 25-26 February 2013, Western Region, Perth WA. Peter Newman 20 September 2013 : Peter Newman, Planfarm, talks about Focus paddocks - remaining weeds are hard to control...

The vast majority of growers now comment that they have fewer weeds than ever, but the ones they have left are very difficult and very expensive to control with herbicides...

Weeds compete against crops for valuable moisture, light and nutrients, but growers can take steps in coming weeks to help their wheat crops fight back and stop the weeds winning... Mr Newman said the seed size of wheat varieties varied considerably and growers should take this into account when calculating seeding rates and plant density... "In the eighth year of using this practice, these growers had no ryegrass in their focus paddocks and have averaged fewer than 1.5 ryegrass plants per square metre ever since," Mr Newman said...
