Understanding post-emergent herbicide use

Understanding post-emergent herbicide use

Despite recent increases in resistance, post-emergent herbicides remain an integral component of weed control strategies in many production systems. As resistance to these herbicides evolves and intensifies, it is important for users to fully understand how these herbicides work and how resistance evolves and is expressed, in order to maximise herbicide performance.

This manual has been developed by Independent Consultants Australia Network for the Grains Research and Development Corporation to provide advisers and growers with the background science and information to better understand how post-emergent herbicides work and to better inform their choices when using these products.
