WeedSmart Week brings together a wealth of knowledge and experience from local and interstate growers, agronomists, and technology experts – putting the spotlight on herbicide resistance and weed control.
This year, our annual flagship event will be held in Mildura, Victoria from 30 August to 1 September 2022. WeedSmart Week is designed to engage growers and advisors on the WeedSmart Big 6 messages.
The 3-day program consists of a Forum day at the Mildura Arts Centre and farm visits in the Mallee region to see how forward-thinking growers are implementing the WeedSmart Big 6 tactics to minimise the impact of herbicide resistance on their businesses.
Ben White, Kondinin Group’s research manager, will host the very popular technology and machinery field demonstration, 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.
