Management of Feathertop Rhodes grass & Barnyard grass

We can only hope we’re close to the end of a long dry spell and we’ll soon see a break! And when we do, significant rain will see a massive flush of weeds. What will particularly be problematic is grass weeds – Feathertop Rhodes grass, Barnyard grass, Sweet summer grass and Urochloa (liverseed grass).

In this webinar, we hear from Bhagirath Chauhan (pictured above), QAAFI weeds researcher, and Paul McIntosh, WeedSmart’s northern extension agronomist.

They investigate the best strategies to ensure summer crops and the upcoming winter crop are given the resources to achieve higher yields. Controlling summer grass weeds requires a strategy with interventions at various stages of the growing season.

Bhagirath explains the biology of the most problematic grass weeds and how to employ strategies that provide your summer crop and subsequent winter crop with ideal conditions for growth.
