Chaff cart benefits crop and stock.. Ted Ridgway with the chaff cart he adapted with his son, Andrew, to fit their header on the family's farm at Pine Hill, South Australia... While newer herbicides, such as Sakura in wheat and Select in canola, are working well in controlling ryegrass, Ted realised he needed to diversify his control practices before he lost the new chemicals to resistance as well...

Field trials of the Harrington Seed Destructor (HSD) in South Australia, New South Wales and Victoria have shown the weed-management device is as effective at managing annual ryegrass in the east as it is in the west... Results from the counts show the HSD had the same affect on annual ryegrass populations as in WA trials in 2010... The HSD was invented by WA farmer Ray Harrington as an alternative to windrow burning and chaff carts...

Narrow windrow burning is a simple, low cost way of destroying weed seeds after harvest by placing crop residue in a narrow windrow during harvest and then burning it... Maurie Street, chief executive officer of the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) funded grower solution group Grain Orana Alliance (GOA) says lighter yielding cereal crops or break crops such as chickpeas are ideal crops for those growers looking to initiate windrow burning... "Windrow burning can be an intimidating idea, but I believe chickpea harvest is an opportunity not to be missed," Mr Street said "It is the least competitive crop in terms of competiveness with weeds and has limited weed control options so it is a crop you will potentially see more weed escapes in...

Mullewa grower John Flannagan says that if you can find glyphosate resistant weeds you can manage them... "If you can find glyphosate resistant weeds you can manage them," said Mr Flannagan, who in the last 15 years has twice found patches of glyphosate resistant ryegrass on properties that they own or lease... "In the early 2000s and then again in 2009 we found patches of glyphosate resistant ryegrass on two different properties," Mr Flannagan said...

Controlling weed seed at harvest may be growers' best line of defence in combatting the on-going battle against herbicide resistance... With headers now dotted across winter crop paddocks in New South Wales and Queensland, the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is reminding growers that driving down the weed seed bank is critical to managing herbicide resistance... "Driving down the weed seed bank is growers' best defence against herbicide resistance and that centres on two key considerations - dealing with the weed seeds already existing in the soil and stopping additional weed seeds from entering the soil...

Narrow windrow burn offers window to kill weed seed.. "Narrow windrows are ideal as they burn hotter for longer, killing the weed seeds, and they also minimise the area of the paddock that is burnt, leaving enough residue to reduce the risk of erosion," said Dr Walsh, whose work is supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)... "Narrow windrow burning is ideally suited to the lower rainfall areas in Australia where crop yields are lower it has a role to play for growers in higher rainfall areas, particularly for canola and pulse crops where the risk of fire escapes is not as high," Dr Walsh said...
