You don’t know what you don’t know about managing weeds

With Crop Consultants Australia

There is no denying that Australia has an ever-increasing list of herbicide-resistant weed species and there is a tendency to consider this a southern and western problem.

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.
