This year, our annual flagship event will be held in Esperance, WA from the 17th to the 19th of August 2021. WeedSmart Week is designed to engage growers and advisors on WeedSmart’s Big 6 messages.
The 3-day program consists of a Forum day at the Esperance Civic Centre with day 2 and 3 consisting of farm visits in the Esperance region to see how forward-thinking growers are implementing the WeedSmart Big 6 tactics to minimise the impact of herbicide resistance on their businesses.
This year, Ben White, Kondinin Group’s research manager, will host the very popular technology and machinery field demo, where attendees will have the opportunity to see and discuss cutting-edge innovations such as the latest sprayer and weed detection technology and a range of harvest weed seed control implements.
WeedSmart Week offers a unique opportunity for growers and other industry stakeholders to hear first-hand about innovative and practical weed solutions.
The registration fee is for Day 1 – WeedSmart Week Forum event, Tuesday 17 August. Registered participants can opt to attend the farm tours on Day 2 and Day 3 at no extra cost. Registration includes all lunches and a complimentary bus service from Esperance to the farms.
