Highlighting the true cost of in-crop weeds.. A new study shows in-crop weeds are an ongoing challenge for Australian grain growers, with overall costs estimated at $3.3 billion annually in terms of lost yield and management methods... Results from the study, available in a report entitled Impact of Weeds on Australian Grain Production , also show growers are mostly keeping in-crop weeds at low densities, despite the increasing presence of herbicide resistance...

Compiled by an Australia-wide team led by technical specialist Andrew Storrie of the Cooperative Research Centre for Australian Weed Management (CRC Weeds), the 250-page manual provides growers with a 'bible' of practical information in their fight against crop weeds... The Integrated Weed Management Manual details strategies to control weed populations at different points in the production cycle, so growers can apply the best management possibilities to their own situations... Growers will be familiar with many of the control options but the manual brings together data on the value of each, enabling better decisions on the mix of controls implemented...

Efforts to eradicate wild radish have intensified on the property of Simon and Dahnie Smart at Chapman Valley, near Geraldton, as costs to control this scourge escalate to about $50 per hectare... Shaun Earl manages the Smarts' farm and says the family is closely monitoring wild radish resistance and implementing a range of chemical and non-chemical strategies to combat this problem... "We know there is partial radish resistance on this property to all chemicals but we don't have plants with full resistance," he says...

H. marinum is widely referred to as sea barley grass around the world, and H. hystrixis known as Mediterranean barley grass... Conditions that favour germination and establishment The seed of common sowthistle can germinate at temperatures in the range 5 C to 35 C. Germination is ultimately determined by moisture availability, as a moist environment is preferred... There is a high proportion of seedling emergence from shallow seed sources, whereas more deeply buried seeds remain dormant and long-lived with a half life estimated at 10 years...

The next generation of weed control should allow growers to target and treat weeds at an individual species level - in-crop - using machine-vision-based robotic weed-spraying technologies... In the trial, the guinea grass among the sugarcane crop on the left has been treated with Roundup using the machine-vision-based weed sensing technology developed by the NCEA... Although the technology needs further refinement before it is ready for commercialisation, Mr Rees envisages that growers in the future could feasibly treat both types of weeds (broadleaf and grass) in a single pass, using independent sprays of both broadleaf and grass-selective herbicides in a single operation...
