Herbicide tolerant pulses provide promise for future

Today on the podcast we talk about potential new herbicide tolerant pulse varieties and we also get a summary of how WeedSmart Week in Clare went.

Agriculture Victoria’s Dr Garry Rosewarne is our first guest. He joins us to talk about the research he’s been leading in looking at herbicide tolerances in pulses. As many growers are aware, pulses have limited in-crop herbicide options. However, with the development of breeding techniques involving mutagenesis, pulse germplasm has been developed with herbicide tolerances.

Our newly appointed WeedSmart Extension Agronomist for South Australia & Victoria, YP AG’s Chris Davey also joins us today as our second guest. He tells us about how WeedSmart Week in Clare faired.
