Strike weeds early in the north and prevent resistance

The Northern region is a glyphosate resistance hotspot!

Strike weeds early

You’ve got to strike weeds early in the north to keep abreast of resistance.

The northern region is a hotspot for glyphosate resistance with 8 of 12 species of weeds in the region having resistance and appearing mostly in patches.

Department of Primary Industries NSW technical specialist Tony Cook explains the consequences of this.

He explains how it’s imperative in the north to strike weeds early in fallow to control resistance.

‘Is fallow weed management cost effective?’

Featuring Tony Cook, Technical Specialist – Weeds with NSW DPI

If you’d like to find out more about fallow management, we also have a blog post with more of Tony’s advice.

With no crop competition in the fallow, weeds are free to grow bigger. They can produce about ten times more seed per plant than they can if they grow in-crop.

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.

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.
