An army of grain growers is spreading out across Western Australia, kitted out with the latest weapons to fight herbicide resistance after attending a recent series of Integrated Weed Management (IWM) workshops in Moora, Wyalkatchem, Darkan, Nyabing, Green Range and Kendenup... Coordinated and presented by Andrew Storrie of Agronomo, the workshops highlighted the need to take action on weeds, and particularly seed banks, to delay the establishment of resistance and deal with it once it occurs. ".. We wanted growers to walk away with a greater understanding of how herbicide resistance develops and what they can do about it," Mr Storrie said. "..
