The benefits improve crop health and crop competitive ability against weeds and the effectiveness of pre-emergent herbicides... When used as a post-emergent product, little of the herbicide gets to the roots and the control of established weeds is often very poor... benefits arise when the weed is prevented from setting seed as there are no increases to the seedbank and, as a consequence, fewer weeds in the future...

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)...

The use of a mouldboard plough with a skimmer attached, that fully inverts the soil to bury weed seeds from on or near the surface to a depth of 15 cm or more, would result in a dramatic reduction of seedling emergence for the majority of weed species... Crop Updates is a partnership between the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia and the Grains Research & Development Corporation 282.. We still have many years ahead of growers experiencing the hardships of resistant weed management before they turn the corner and get on top of the problem...

The maximum potential of collection by baling this material was only 50% of the seed that enters the header... Two different approaches determined that higher temperatures during seed development correlated with greater germinability (less dormancy) when measured at harvest and following five months of after-ripening (Steadman et al. 2004; Steadman & Ellery 2004)... A single batch of seeds will after-ripen faster in the north (e.g. Mullewa) than the south (e.g. Mt. Barker) of the wheat belt due to the temperature difference (Steadman et al. 2003a)...
