With winter crop harvest fast approaching, growers are being urged to take weed seed samples to help map out an effective weed management strategy for the upcoming season... Taking seed samples from survivor weeds at harvest and sending them off for testing will allow growers to assess their control options for next year," Mr Street said... "Herbicide resistance costs the northern grains industry tens of millions of dollars each year and unless growers understand the resistance status of the weeds on their farm, they can't have full confidence that their normal control measures will continue to work in the future."..

"Herbicide resistance costs the northern grains industry tens of millions of dollars each year and unless growers understand the resistance status of the weeds on their farm, they can't have full confidence that their normal control measures will continue to work in the future.".. The samples were from weeds present at last year's harvest so were most likely to have survived herbicide application and have some herbicide resistance - it really defines the worst case scenario."..

GRDC has invested significant funding in this area for the past eight years for research and extension with grain growers to develop innovative ways of managing resistant weeds while improving farm profitability... As the shift to more intensive cropping systems gains momentum and herbicide use increases, authorities say it could only be a matter of time before resistance levels in southern cropping states reach those of Western Australia where growers have been battling the nation's highest incidence of herbicide resistance... Weeds compete against crops for valuable moisture, light and nutrients, but growers can take steps in coming weeks to help their wheat crops fight back and stop the weeds winning...

Harvest weed seed control plays an important role in stopping weed seeds from entering the soil... Addressing growers and advisers at the GRDC Updates earlier this year, Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) principal research scientist Dr Michael Widderick said while resistance to one mode of action herbicide was extremely common in the north, many cases of multiple or cross resistance was also now occurring particularly in problem weeds like wild oats...
