Controlling herbicide resistant radish with herbicides in the Northern Agricultural Region (NAR) of WA with a two spray strategy.. The paper demonstrates clear options for growers based on a second year of work conducted by the Northern Agricultural Region GRDC RCSN Initiative... Velocity achieved the highest level of control (100%) at two leaf stage, but when MCPA was added and sprayed at five leaf stage, the treatment still achieved 100% control and did not suffer a reduction in efficacy like the Jaguar + MCPA treatment...

Stop summer weeds draining your profits.. Extra nitrogen available to a crop through fallow weed control is reflected in yield and, potentially, grain protein "Previous research in central NSW has found that up to 50 per cent of yield potential can be attributed to summer rainfall and summer fallow management, so not controlling summer weeds is costing growers in moisture and nitrogen in the following crop," he says... "The higher levels of soil water in fallows where weeds are controlled are likely to see more nitrogen mineralised in the fallow period, making it available for use by the following crop," Mr McMaster says...

Total crop germination percentage is reduced by coating but may still prove valuable in terms of weed control by delaying crop emergence compared to weed emergence... The solution applied was a mixture of MSS, blue food colouring to enable us to see the extent of the coverage on the wheat seed, and wetting agent (BS1000) to assist in covering the seed...
