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.

Join us at WeedSmart Week Dalby from the 7th to the 8th of February 2023. WeedSmart Week is designed to engage growers and advisors on the WeedSmart Big 6 messages.

The program consists of a Forum day at the Dalby Events Centre and farm visits in Queensland’s Western Downs to see how forward-thinking growers are implementing the WeedSmart Big 6 tactics to minimise the impact of herbicide resistance on their businesses.
