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...

Highly vigorous wheat lines have been developed which can produce up to double the biomass of commonly grown varieties by the early tillering stage, effectively shading out weeds... Increased root growth also enables the wheat to out-compete weeds for water and nutrients... The best of the competitive lines grown at Eradu yielded 3.4 tonnes per hectare, compared with 3.5t/ha for Magenta , the top yielding commercial line...

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...

As a grain grower near Mingenew in the Geraldton port zone I'm well aware of the threat posed by wild radish to the financial viability of growers in my region... Recognising the problem, collaborative local research has been conducted investigating herbicidal control of wild radish, and the results will provide guidance to Western Australian growers this season... After identifying wild radish as the main priority for funding in 2012, the research - involving a number of researchers and farm advisers - set about trying to find new herbicide tankmixes for wild radish control as an alternative to using the newer herbicides such as Velocity (bromoxynil and pyrasulfotole) twice in a growing season...

Comprehensive study reveals cost of weeds to northern growers.. The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) commissioned report Impact of weeds on Australian grain production also shows that growers are investing heavily in weed management and, despite increasing levels of herbicide resistance, in-crop weed populations are being kept low... GRDC General Manager Crop Protection Ken Young said the industry study into the cost of weeds - including yield losses and the costs of weed management practices - had input from 600 growers, as well as agronomists, consultants, agribusiness data experts and researchers...

Opportunities exist for grain growers in the southern cropping region to more effectively manage weeds in retained stubble systems, according to new research conducted by the CSIRO and funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)... "The data shows very large differences between regions for practices like harvest weed seed control, crop topping and double knockdown which reflects past differences in the levels of herbicide resistance, but we're now seeing resistance issues becoming much more important in all cropping regions," Dr Llewellyn said...
