WEBINARS

Learn from industry leaders in the comfort of your own home, on your phone or even out in the field.

WeedSmart Podcast

In this podcast, we hear from Northern Grower Alliance CEO Richard Daniel about managing wild oats in the North and Dr Lee Hickey about his work in developing new crop varieties using old genetics. Lee talks about Vavilov wheats, speed breeding and a root gene! We also get an insight into what agronomist Tony Lockrey from Moree, Queensland thought of the event, as well as event organiser Paul McIntosh.

Webinar Series: Summer spray season challenges

With the summer spray season kicking off, we aim to get our farmers using all the technology and knowledge available to them, to assist to keep spray drift and volatilisation controlled during summer spraying whether it be in regions where summer crops are grown or not.

Correct preparation minimises drift and maximises efficacy. Choosing the correct nozzle for the job, adjuvant and weather is the first step, followed by careful attention to buffer zones, the speed of spraying and time of day.

If you missed Webinar 2 in our ‘summer spraying’ series with Nufarm Spray Applications Specialist, Bill Gordon, you can catch up below!

We'll run through all of the six different harvest weed control tools too, talking about the pros and cons and about where they fit in the farming system!

If you're a grower or an agronomist and you'd like to find out more about these tools, take a look at this course.
