Zero till farming and wind-blown seed dispersal, coupled with glyphosate resistance has seen fleabane develop as one of the major broadleaf weeds of northern cropping systems... Effective management of fleabane will require a combination of good agronomy; non-herbicide tactics (e.g. crop competition) and strategic use of herbicides... Various products containing 2,4-D + picloram - Knockdown and residual control in fallow prior to planting winter cereals in mixtures with glyphosate (NSW & Qld only)...
