Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
The aim of the project was to provide industry with research results that would enable it to clearly understand the flow of benefits from, and the beneficiaries of, its investments in herbicide use R&D and help inform priority setting by GRDC in future investment in research into the effective and efficient use of herbicides... Benefits to growers, chemical companies and consumers were estimated for eight case studies of hypothetical research projects across four categories of herbicide-use research and development (R&D)... Any possibility of private investment by chemical companies can be discounted for the types of herbicide use R&D evaluated in this study because the ex ante benefit:cost ratio that accounts for risk about R&D outcomes would be even smaller...

Offensive arms growers with tools to fight resistance.. WeedSmart provides a practical and innovative tool kit of resources for advisers and growers to keep weeds - and herbicide resistance - at bay... WeedSmart encourages growers to knock out 100 per cent of weeds at every opportunity, implementing chemical and non-chemical weed control measures throughout a season, reducing weed seed banks and preventing weeds from setting seed and spreading resistance...

The GRDC, through its Pathways to Regulation project (AKC00003), has recently been successful in progressing an industry-initiated label change through the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA)... The approval has allowed all registrants of paraquat to have their labels changed as an approved APVMA label ammendment... The reduction in withholding period from 14 days to 7 days for some paraquat herbicides on some labels will be good news for pulse growers - particularly lentil growers who intend to crop-top prior to harvest...

Reliance on a narrow range of chemicals to control pests leads to problems in resurgence, secondary pests and the development of pesticide resistance... We will expand upon work performed under GRDC project "developing and demonstrating the role of alternative chemistries and integrated management for crop establishment pests" (project UM00033), which is investigating the distribution and level of resistance in redlegged earth mites... Laboratory tests have shown that these mite species and lucerne flea differ in their tolerance to pesticides application rates for one species may not be effective against another species...

Wind-tunnel research tests spraying rules.. Testing a new low-drift formulation in the wind tunnel has helped a US chemical company secure a five-fold reduction in the buffer zone for its product.. The tunnel lets researchers control and manipulate the factors that influence spray drift and effectiveness, such as weather, wind speed and direction, nozzle size, atmospheric stability, tank mix, boom height, boom stability and Delta T (how temperature and humidity affect evaporation)...
