The barley and wheat cultivars bred for the Northern Region are routinely tested for their tolerance to herbicides in three stages... Prior to release and commercialisation, the cultivars are screened with six standard herbicides; Ally, 2,4-D, Glean, MCPA LVE, Starane and Tordon242 for wheat; and Achieve, Ally, 2,4-D, MCPA LVE, Starane and Tordon242 for barley... The paper presents the results on the herbicide tolerance of the new barley and wheat cultivars that have been released in the last five years...

For much of the last two decades, they have been managed in-crop, predominantly using Group A herbicides... In recent years it has become clear that herbicide resistant wild oats are becoming a key threat to a sustainable northern farming system... 1. No significant rate response was obtained by increasing the rate of Triflur Xcel or Avadex Xtra in the mixture..
