The agronomist from Dubbo, New South Wales, says two years of survey data show herbicide resistance is increasing at an alarming rate across the central western NSW cropping belt and growers need to change tactics urgently to develop effective, long-term weed-management strategies... "In the GOA surveys both ryegrass and black oats demonstrated a high incidence of resistance, with 100 per cent of the ryegrass and 86 per cent of black oats showing resistance to at least one herbicide," Mr Street says... Before growers and agronomists decide on a course of action, Mr Street says it is critical they start testing survivor weed samples so they can map the resistance status of individual farms and paddocks as part of the process to develop effective long-term strategy for the management of hard-to-kill weeds...

A study trip to Western Australia two years ago convinced him that windrow burning would help manage weeds on a long term basis within his existing winter/summer crop rotation program... "Weeds create so many issues within a farming system - they cost yield, can force you to miss planting opportunities and can be extremely costly to control due to resistance issues - and this can force you to move to a less economic rotation," Mr Roche said... "We have learned through experience that breakouts can happen extremely quickly, even within a year, but the introduction of windrow burning has helped us turn that situation around...
