Project No.: DAW 672 Paper reviewed by: David Minkey and Abul Hashem Crop Updates is a partnership between the Department of Agriculture, Western Australia and the Grains Research & Development Corporation 20.. The negative impact of Raptor and Spinnaker on herbage production observed in the 4 advanced breeding lines (Crop Updates 2004) was not reflected as lower seed set... Overall, 2,4-D and Gramoxone were the most damaging to legume seed production; this reflected the impact of these treatments on herbage production (Crop Updates 2004)...

To assess the tolerance of sub tropical grasses (panic, signal and Rhodes grass) to a wide range of knockdown and in-crop herbicides, over the winter dormancy period... The difference became less noticeable with time as the Rhodes grass began active growth (sent out runners) about a month earlier than the panic or signal grass... Although the sub tropical grasses did not appear to grow over the winter period (Jul-Aug), these results would indicate that they are by no means completely dormant...

A priority list of crop weeds in Victoria was developed in consultation with famers and agronomists... A survey of 28 lentil crops showed Indian Hedge Mustard (IHM) was also a major problem, with weed densities of 20/m 2 giving an estimated 50% yield loss... Future research should investigate its ecology and management...

The proposed project will undertake research on the identification of emerging weeds in southern and western regions, factors contributing to their increasing abundance as well as developing and promoting adoption of practices for their effective management... The project will start with a coordinated survey of weeds of cropping paddocks in each region... Some of the emerging weeds have already been identified through feedback by different grower groups which include barley grass, brome grass, silver grass, marshmallow, fleabane, matricaria, common sowthistle, windmill grass, stinking lovegrass and Lincoln weed...
