Webinar: What is the state of play of Glyphosate?

Glyphosate has dominated global headlines in the last couple of years, from court cases in the US to bans in the European Union. Despite the overwhelming scientific consensus regarding glyphosate’s safety, the discussion is now infiltrating Australian communities and farmers are questioning what they would do if we lost glyphosate here.

Professor Stephen Powles and Bayer Crop Science Head of Public Affairs Carissa Buckland (Matthew Cossey was unfortunately, sick on the day!) joined WeedSmart and AHRI Western Extension Agronomist Pete Newman to give an overview of the current situation surrounding the world’s most used herbicide and what this means for the Australian grains industry.

Podcast: Drone to tractor fallow weed solution saving up to 95% on herbicide costs

Emerald WeedSmart Week is less than a month away, so Northern Extension Agronomist, Paul McIntosh, guest co-hosts with Jessica Strauss to highlight some of the excellent speakers who will be presenting over the 3-day event.

In this podcast, we hear from InFarm Managing Director Jerome Leray who will be presenting at WeedSmart Week.

InFarm is an Agricultural Intelligence company based in Goondiwindi. The company has been recognised by Microsoft for becoming the first commercial company to receive the AI for Earth grant in Australia.

The company has developed a drone to tractor fallow weed solution. It can save farmers up to 95% on herbicide and integrates with standard variable rate sprayers. It provides a solution to fallow weed spot spraying using the equipment farmers already have.

We also speak with local CQ farmers, Kurt Mayne and Scott Becker about their farming systems and how WeedSmart’s Big 6 principles have shaped some of the practical changes they’ve made, including some big purchases, like the WEEDit.

Chaff lining has really taken off

Chaff lining has been a dominant talking point in farming communities as an easy to adopt, low-cost HWSC tool. It has also experienced relatively rapid adoption across the country. Check out our latest video to learn more.
