Mixed farming – does it really help control resistant weeds?

Mixed farming can create opportunities to manage glyphosate-resistant ryegrass, amongst other weeds.

In this webinar, WeedSmart Southern extension agronomist Greg Condon looks at the mixed farming system and explains how the Big 6 principles encourage diverse weed management. Greg focuses on solutions in the medium rainfall zone whilst grower and agronomist Craig Drum focuses on the high rainfall zone.

Both Greg and Craig share real-life examples of clients who successfully controlled resistant weeds by using a mixed farming system, whilst remaining profitable.

Topics covered include:

  • What the WeedSmart Big 6 looks like in a mixed farming system
  • How to be profitable whilst reducing the seedbank of resistant weeds
  • Harvest Weed Seed Control opportunities: baled chaff, chafflines
  • 4 examples of clients who successfully controlled their resistant weeds using mixed farming
