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...

Surveys of growers after the trials and field days found many were prepared to use a double knock and spend more money - up to $50 per hectare - on weed control along fencelines to avoid the onset of glyphosate resistance...

Growers are reminded of the benefits of controlling weeds on fencelines and other non-cropping areas while these weeds are smaller and easier to control... Dr Peltzer encourages growers to prevent weeds from setting seed in crop margins as uncontrolled herbicide resistant weed populations which develop in these areas are likely to become even more resistant and spread into paddocks... Results from 11 trials over three years showed that a single application of bromacil plus paraquat in May or June provided complete control of all weeds at all sites...
