A range of options is needed for effective summer weed control.. All these summer weeds have populations that are either resistant to glyphosate or naturally tolerant of glyphosate (such as feathertop Rhodes grass).. The weeds in question - awnless barnyard grass, feathertop Rhodes grass (FTR), windmill grass, liverseed grass, sowthistle and the notorious fleabane - are all a problem in summer fallows: "And all have populations either resistant to glyphosate or naturally tolerant to glyphosate (such as FTR)...

But despite the prolonged dry - particularly from 2002-09 - farmers have remained committed to progress and local agronomist Penny Heuston says many have responded to the diminishing rainfall challenge by lifting the sophistication of their cropping systems and management... In Central West NSW, for example, there are still a lot of sheep and cattle in mixed farming operations, but the R&D going into grain varieties, weed control and soil moisture management is lifting interest in cropping," she says. ".. The alliance covers Central West NSW and hopes to fill the gap left by shrinking research from bodies such as Industry and Investment NSW and CSIRO. On-farm trials already cover wheat nutrition, canola reliability and aphid control...

Growers do not have access to varieties with resistance to the key exotic pests and disease... The project will proceed in two phases... The project is about optimizing pesticide sprayapplications by: identifying spray technologies and spray settings with low risk of spraydrift, applying pesticides in accordance with latest knowledge about pest behaviour in response to pesticides andtherefore minimizes the risk of target pests developing resistance, and by using pesticides with documented efficacyagainst target pests...
