fleabane management

Catalogue: GRDC Updates
Double Knock This involves an initial treatment with Glyphosate + hormone, followed 10 days later by an application of Paraquat (Gramoxone )... 14 day interval is preferable to 7, if 10 days can't be achieved, as this allows adequate time for the hormone to work within the plant, as well as providing an opportunity to pick up subsequent germinations of weeds 2... Initial chemical treatments were applied and sheep were allowed to graze on the site (around 15 DSE/ha), further treatments were applied post-grazing, including a follow up application of Gramoxone on part of the initial chemical treatments...

With 'single knocks', 'double knocks' and residual herbicides, growers in the northern region are successfully fighting back against fleabane.. Fleabane is a wind-borne, surface-germinating weed that thrives in areas of low competition and which proliferated in the northern region as growers moved towards reduced and no-till farming... Fleabane proliferated in the northern region but has spread south and west as more growers adopt no-till and reduced-till farming...

Although residual herbicides will limit re-cropping options and will not provide complete control, they are a key part of successful fallow management.. The experiment showed that some of these populations were still only suppressed when sprayed with 12.8_L/ha... The most recent survey has focused on non-cropping situations with a large number of resistant populations found on roadsides and railway lines etc where glyphosate alone has been the principal weed management tool employed...
