Glyphosate resistance in ryegrass

Glyphosate is a “once-in-a-lifetime” herbicide and finding another like it is extremely unlikely!

The magnifying glass is put to glyphosate resistance in ryegrass in this webinar!

AHRI’s Peter Newman hosts the webinar with presenter Plant Science Consulting principle and University of Adelaide researcher, Dr Peter Boutsalis.

Peter helps us understand why plants surviving a glyphosate spray in the field aren’t always resistant.

Q & A Timestamps

22:06 I thought Dave Minkey did some work and showed 8L/ha of glyphosate didn’t kill ryegrass, but weren’t resistant, and it was due to the waxy leaf from early water stress?

23:36 Should we eradicate brome populations (glyphosate resistant brome populations) when we find them? (Taking a biosecurity approach and treating it like a noxious weed?) [AUDIENCE POLL]

28:03 What is the ideal water rate to spray glyphosate on ryegrass?

30:03 Does spray topping for seed set control of glyphosate resistant ryegrass or brome grass work considering that it’s sequestration at the tip e.g. does it go to the seed head?

31:52 Does dust from tractors in dry fallow neutralise glyphosate? E.g. for waxy leaves?

32:15 What about the use of adjuvants to improve the efficacy of glyphosate?

53:42 What is the optimum time to come back and double knock firebreaks?

56:37 In a Roundup Ready crop, would you prefer two applications of 1L/ha four weeks apart, or a single application of 2L/ha?

57:42 Spraying glyphosate at night in the cool verses spraying during the day?

58:54 Alliance (paraquat and amitrole) being good on fencelines?

59:49 On the label for UltraMax it talks about using a coarse to very coarse spray quality. Are coarse droplets too big to hit small ryegrass?

How to make the right decision on using Group Gs in the Northern cropping system

Group Gs have a place in northern cropping systems both in summer and winter crop scenarios. We ask Andrew Somervaille to explain Group G use in both systems and the most optimum use of different Group G products given the range of seasonal conditions in the northern cropping region.

How do I make the right decision on using Group Gs?

Choosing and applying the right pre-emergent herbicide can be difficult, particularly if herbicide resistance is becoming a challenge in a no-till system. Join Dr Chris Preston, University of Adelaide (UA) professor weed management and WeedSmart’s Chris Davey as they explain the new Group G chemistry and de-mystifies which Group G works best for winter cropping systems.

Testing all of your herbicides for resistance with Roberto Busi

  Dr Roberto Busi Roberto discusses what the current levels of resistance to knock-down herbicides (glyphosate and paraquat) are, resistance to new and old pre-emergent herbicides and resistance to clethodim. The results are discussed with Peter Newman by analysing the pros and cons of herbicide resistance testing and the value of herbicide efficacy and resistance testing with new herbicides coming into the Australian market from 2021.

Glyphosate Resistance Update with Peter Boutsalis

Dr Peter Boutsalis from the University of Adelaide joins this webinar to discuss tips to optimise the efficacy of glyphosate and when and when not to use the double knock strategy. Peter also shares the latest results from the GRDC-funded random weeds survey in the Eyre Peninsula and southern Victoria and how the resistance levels in these areas have changed over the last 5 years.

You don’t know what you don’t know about managing weeds

Agronomists play a key role in the northern region, not only in identifying and tackling crop weeds but also in protecting chemistries. In the face of this challenge, utilising the WeedSmart Big 6 tools is showing results in tackling problem weeds. Join Crop Consultants Australia’s Director Ben Dawson, as he hosts Dr. Chris Preston and Paul McIntosh from WeedSmart and they discuss the role that agronomists can play in breaking this cycle.
