Resistance in corn, soybean & cotton crops in the US

Webinar Series: US and Australia share expertise to fight resistance

Webinar 2: Resistance in corn, soybean & cotton

Part 2 of our Webinar Series: America and Australia share expertise to fight resistance, looks at resistance in corn, soybean and cotton.

It features special guest US Professor Jason Norsworthy.

Peter Newman asks Jason if the US is thinking about alternatives to glyphosate.

Given their high dependence on RR crops, what are the repercussions of this strategy?

Jason is evangelical in his quest to keep glyphosate working for corn, soybean and corn, soybean and cotton crops.

What are the challenges and the strategies being used to address creeping resistance?

You can watch the webinar below to find out!

 

Webinar 1: Understanding P450s to better manage resistance

In Part 1 of this webinar series, we look at how to understand how plants evolve resistance to a herbicide that has not yet been used.

Colorado State University researcher, Todd Gaines and AHRI’s Roberto Busi are the presenters on this webinar.

Host Peter Newman also asks the presenters what the genetic basis of metabolic resistance is and can we control metabolic resistant weeds?

Todd explains the science with Roberto Busi outlining new results on interactions between an insecticide and current pre-emergent herbicides to control ryegrass.

Considerations for pre-emergent herbicides with dry sowing

In this webinar, we focus on what factors influence the residual control of weeds by pre-emergent herbicides with a focus on Trifluralin, Sakura and new-to-market herbicides.
Join Chris Davey, YPAG and WeedSmart Extension Agronomist and Mark Congreve, ICAN Senior Agronomist as they assess the sowing issues in South Australia and discuss strategies on using pre-emergents.
Factors covered include

Soil type/texture
Rainfall forecast (after application)
Characteristics of the herbicide
Characteristics of the crop
Sowing time (tine vs disc) – sowing depth, speed, soil throw, stubble
Resistance status

Farmer questions answered on Group G herbicides and optimum application temperature

In this follow-up to last year’s webinar on Group Gs, Dr Chris Preston, University of Adelaide, Professor of Weed Management and WeedSmart’s Greg Condon focus on farmer questions around Group G herbicide use.
They explain the new Group G chemistry in simple terms and address questions around what temperature range provides optimum herbicide efficacy.

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.
