managing summer weed

Catalogue: GRDC Media
A new online resource is a good first 'port of call' for Western Australian growers seeking information about managing summer weeds, which are currently widespread... Growers know that weeds allowed to grow during a fallow will use available soil water, use soil nitrogen and add seeds to the seed bank, increasing weed pressure and control costs in following seasons...

Weed resources can guide management decisions.. Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) resources can guide growers on pre-harvest herbicide application to control weeds in winter crops, and post-harvest control of summer weeds... It provides essential information on the value of stored water; the effects of summer weeds on nitrogen; other weed effects on following crops; use of herbicides in the fallow; and effective spray application...

Recent rain in Southern Cropping Region means summer weeds for grain growers.. Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) southern panel member and Swan Hill-based agronomist, Rob Sonogan, said the recent rains in many parts of southern New South Wales, South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania could be enough to initiate germination in summer weeds... "There are precautions that all growers must observe when spraying and others that might be specific to their area, like the Chemical Control Areas within North West Victoria where no Ester sprays can be used, as well as the ever present issue of spray drift and inversion conditions that must be avoided," Mr Sonogan said...

Research has demonstrated the profitability of controlling summer weeds early, which increases soil water and nutrients available to the next season's crops, boosting their yields and grain quality... Mr Storrie has helped update Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) resources that can guide growers on pre-harvest herbicide application to control weeds in winter crops, and post-harvest control of summer weeds... Mr Storrie said controlling germinating summer weeds in-crop, where possible, would give growers a head start on summer fallow management and lead to more water being retained in the soil, as well as extra nitrogen being available to crops in the next season...

Mr Storrie and John Cameron, of ICAN, have co-authored a new reference manual Summer Fallow Weed Management , published by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), which demonstrates how growers can reap a high return on investment from managing summer weeds... "If growers receive rainfall events of more than 10mm in coming weeks and have a history of fleabane in their district, they are likely to have fleabane germinating in their paddocks," Mr Storrie said... "GRDC funded trials conducted by the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) have shown that fleabane can most effectively be controlled when plants are at the rosette stage," he said...

Grain growers in the southern cropping region are advised to turn their attention to early control of summer weeds which rob valuable moisture and nutrients from soils into which next year's crops will be sown... Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Southern Regional Panel member and Swan Hill-based agronomist, Rob Sonogan, encourages growers to get on top of any summer weeds early to increase the effectiveness of weed management measures and prevent weeds from being a larger problem later... "Controlling summer weeds can assist growers in sowing their crops on time and can also minimise disease and insect issues that can occur when a 'green bridge' of weeds and volunteer cereals is allowed to survive over summer."..
