Ready in time for the 2013 harvest, it is an initiative of the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Albany port zone Regional Cropping Solutions Network (RCSN) and was produced by the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) with support from the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative and growers... Project leader Alex Douglas, of DAFWA, said excellent HWSC studies had previously been conducted in WA's northern and central grainbelt but less had been known about effective methods used by growers in southern areas, where seasonal conditions are unique... "HWSC provides growers with the opportunity to more effectively manage weed populations and allows them to move away from the almost complete reliance on herbicides for weed control," she said...

But the use of backpacker labour to weed wild radish could be viable where weeds are at extremely low levels, and this is the focus of new research in the Northern Agricultural Region... Mr Newman said trials at three Mullewa sites were assessing the efficacy of hand weeding wild radish using backpacker labour and developing costings for a range of wild radish densities... "When a grower is assessing a crop for spraying, he needs to know if hand weeding is a viable alternative, so we are attempting to develop a threshold for hand weeding based on counting weeds as we drive through the paddock," he said...
