Mr Congreve said planning a coordinated and effective strategy to control in-crop and fallow weeds, particularly problem grassy weeds, would help growers maximise crop yields while delaying the development of resistance on the farm... The second webinar on December 10 will address the latest research on barnyard grass management through the experience of respected industry experts Tony Cook from NSW Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) and Michael Widderick and Jeff Werth from the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF Queensland) who have been extensively studying the ecology, evolution of resistance and management of barnyard grass in fallow and summer crops... Caption: Mark Congreve, Senior Consultant ICAN says planning a coordinated and effective in-crop strategy to control weeds, particularly problem grassy weeds, would help growers maximise crop yields while reducing the likelihood of developing a herbicide resistance problem on-farm...

Weed control on non-crop areas outside the paddock and on the perimeter of crops can sometimes be overlooked... Weeds often invade from the perimeters of paddocks, so an important integrated weed management (IWM) tactic is to keep fencelines and paddock boundaries free of invading species... "Long term sustainable weed management requires an IWM strategy using a range of different tools, not just to manage the weeds that you can see but to prevent them getting into the paddock in the first place...

keY points a break crop is any crop sown to provide diversity to help reduce disease, weed and pest levels in a paddock... the decision to grow a break crop is also complicated by many interactions through the cropping sequences including disease and herbicide carryovers and economic issues such as capital investment for new equipment or storage... pulses and oilseeds can be damaged in a flight auger, and alternative designs including belt shifters are preferred...

Brome grass needs multi-pronged attack.. When herbicides are put under pressure resistant weeds are quickly selected for, such as this population of brome grass... Break crops need to be employed with other management tools including: high seeding rates at sowing for improved competition with brome grass plants; effective herbicide choice with correct rates, droplet size and timing; regular resistance testing if herbicide failure is suspected; retaining or sourcing clean seed for future use; and monitoring brome grass levels in all paddocks while planning future use...

A bridge too far - weeds a reservoir for hidden diseases.. Weeds that survive in a bridge, both living and dead, harbour multiple crop diseases including crown rot, rust and powdery mildew, says Sue Thompson from the Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF)... Controlling weeds in green and brown bridges is a community issue and requires neighbours to work together to remove volunteers and weeds, Ms Thompson says...
