What’s next in broadacre weed control – is green on green a reality? With Greg Condon

In this webinar, WeedSmart Southern Extension Agronomist Greg Condon (pictured above) discusses weed control techniques especially using site-specific technology and how these are evolving.

Site-specific weed control covers a wide range of tactics from chaff lining to shielded spraying, optical spot spraying and the emerging tech around green on green.

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.

New chemistry – what’s new, what’s coming & how to keep them for longer

There is a range of new pre and post-emergent herbicides coming to the market in the coming seasons which will broaden weed control options and use patterns. As new chemistry becomes available it is crucial for all involved to protect the longevity of any new products and minimise the risk of resistance. In this webinar, WeedSmart’s Southern Extension Agronomist Greg Condon will explore the opportunities these new herbicides provide growers and how we can protect these herbicides using the WeedSmart Big 6.
