Welcome to WeedSmart, an initiative that promotes the long term sustainability of herbicide use in Australian agriculture.
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.
It is time to act.
