Despite the prolonged chemical onslaught against wild radish, it persists within farming systems... With funding from the Weeds CRC (2005-08 Molecular Control of Reproduction in Weeds) an initial proof-of-concept study showed that targeting seed production through interference with the molecular basis of fertilisation could form the foundation of practical alternative weed control strategies... Subsequent investments from the GRDC, Australian Weeds Research Centre, University of Melbourne and the CSIRO have confirmed the findings of the initial study...

Mention of a trade name or company in this publication does not imply endorsement of any product or company by the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia... Overall, 60-70 per cent of flour is used in traditional flat breads, 20-25 per cent of flour is used in western style breads and 5-10 per cent is used in cakes and biscuits... In summary, canola varieties sown 2-3 weeks earlier than normal (early to mid April) can be grazed in winter prior to bud elongation (usually providing 600-800 dse grazing days/ha) and recover with no impact on yield or oil...

Hosted by ICAN, the webinar is targeted at grain growers and advisers throughout Australia and will be presented by Peter Newman, of the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative... " the webinar will look at the ecology of wild radish and how to use this information to assist in managing it; its herbicide resistance status; and weed control tactics that have been successfully employed to manage this weed.".. To participate, use a laptop, tablet or personal computer to watch and listen to a 30 minute presentation, which will be followed by about 15 minutes for questions...

Hosted by ICAN, the webinar is targeted at grain growers and advisers throughout Australia and will be presented by Peter Newman, of the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative... "Wild radish is one of the most competitive and difficult to control broadleaf weeds of winter cereal crops, with weed seeds persisting for many years... " the webinar will look at the ecology of wild radish and how to use this information to assist in managing it; its herbicide resistance status; and weed control tactics that have been successfully employed to manage this weed."..

A survey of farmer paddocks across the Western Australian grainbelt has confirmed a big increase in the level of herbicide resistance in wild radish to commonly used Group B selective herbicides... Details of current levels of herbicide resistance in wild radish will be outlined at this month's Agribusiness Crop Updates, which are supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA)... Ms Owen said that while glyphosate, atrazine and pyrasulfatole/bromoxynil (Velocity ) were still effective in most cases, growers should not rely on herbicides alone to manage wild radish and other weeds, and should also consider the use of non-chemical methods for weed control...

Western Australian research investigating herbicide control of wild radish in cereal crops has highlighted the importance of good spraying conditions to maximise chemical uptake by the weed... It has also shown the importance of combining herbicides with different modes of action to maximise wild radish control, especially where herbicide resistance is suspected... "It is critical that, where possible, growers take advantage of good spraying conditions to maximise wild radish control to not only grow grain but also prevent radish seeds returning to the seed bank and further compounding the problem."..

Collaborative research in Western Australia has produced the unexpected result that timing, application and using different herbicide groups are more important than product choice for control of the problem weed wild radish... "Given growers need a diverse range of herbicide options for wild radish control, two sprays are best," he said... Mr Newman said there were a number of effective combinations in the trials that used older herbicides as part of the two-spray strategy, and would pave the way for farmers to reduce reliance on newer chemistries...

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...
