Farm visits will take place on August 22-23 and will give attendees the opportunity to talk directly to the farmers and farm managers about their farming systems.

To ensure you don't miss out, make sure you register by August 16. We have early bird pricing up until July 21 at $70 a ticket and $85 thereafter.



New Diversity Era Course - Harvest Weed Seed Control 101

This is our second online course, this time covering the science of harvest weed control; the nutrient implications; and the costs of all the different tools.

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.

WeedSmart Podcast

What will the future of agriculture look like? One of the founders of Swarmfarm Robotics joins us on the podcast to discuss the robots they're releasing into the agricultural community and what applications they currently have and may have in the future. We also chat about the Quick Test for testing herbicide resistant weeds and check in with Peter Boutsalis from Plant Science Consulting about what he's finding out about resistance out on farms. WA farmer Ben Webb also gives a seasonal overview and gives some insights into how doing the Quick Test helped him make the decision to incorporate a chaff cart into his farming system.

Stay tuned for our next webinar!

We've just completed our first webinar series for the year. Webinar 2 | "Grow a crop worth frosting" featured Ben Biddulph and Garen Knell. They explained the risks and how to minimise the downside of a frost event without delaying planting! You can catch up on this webinar and more. Stay tuned as we'll be releasing info on our next series soon!

Monsanto Herbicide Resistance Testing Program

Monsanto says survey data collected from over 200 growers and consultants across cotton growing regions shows that the majority are managing herbicide resistant weeds on-farm. If you'd like to be part of their herbicide resistance testing program, you can sign up below. This program is available to all farmers who have grown Roundup Ready® Flex cotton in the previous 3 seasons.
