Watch the latest WeedSmart webinar: Understanding pre-emergent herbicides
In part 1 of WeedSmart’s “Setting crops up for success in 2015″ webinar series, Dr Chris Preston from the Uni of Adelaide discusses the chemistry of pre-emergent herbicides, how they work and what’s the best option for your farming operation..
Herbicide use as we know it is under threat. No-till farming has made us overly dependent on herbicides, with resistant weeds threatening the productivity gains of the past 20 years.
A diverse range of tactics is needed – both herbicide and non-herbicide – with a focus on preventing weed seeds entering the seed bank. Ensure herbicide sustainability with harvest weed seed control.
Welcome to WeedSmart, an initiative that promotes the long term sustainability of herbicide use in Australian agriculture.
