Ready in time for the 2013 harvest, it is an initiative of the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Albany port zone Regional Cropping Solutions Network (RCSN) and was produced by the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) with support from the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative and growers... Project leader Alex Douglas, of DAFWA, said excellent HWSC studies had previously been conducted in WA's northern and central grainbelt but less had been known about effective methods used by growers in southern areas, where seasonal conditions are unique... "HWSC provides growers with the opportunity to more effectively manage weed populations and allows them to move away from the almost complete reliance on herbicides for weed control," she said...

The continuous cropper, who has properties 50 kilometres east of Pingelly and 30km east of Corrigin, says towing a chaff cart has helped reduce the ryegrass seedbank... At east Pingelly in 2010, several barley paddocks sown close to 22 April went on to average 2.5 tonnes a hectare, whereas those planted around 24 May averaged 1.5t/ha. ".. Lance waits for clear weather and a light breeze before setting fire to the wheat dumps at about 4.30pm.

Weeds researcher Peter Newman is encouraging growers with autosteer on their headers who burn harvest windrows for weed seed control to move their windrows by one metre each year to minimise the amount of nutrients lost from windrowed stubble... If the header follows a different path each year, the potassium is eventually redistributed across the paddock and only nitrogen is lost, Mr Newman says... With higher fertiliser prices and most headers fitted with autosteer, he says "the game has changed and we need to react "...

Results from the counts show the HSD had the same affect on annual ryegrass populations as in WA trials in 2010... The HSD was invented by WA farmer Ray Harrington as an alternative to windrow burning and chaff carts...
