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.

Join us for Webinar 2 in our ‘summer spraying’ series on November 21, when Pete asks Nufarm Spray Applications Specialist, Bill Gordon to step us through the process of setting up the spray rig correctly and assessing and choosing the conditions which will provide the best efficacy on the area being sprayed.

WeedSmart Podcast


With the help of GRDC, Planfarm recently held Harvest Weed Seed Control (#HWSC) workshops in Western Australia. All the current approaches to HWSC were discussed in detail. In this podcast, Jessica Strauss is joined by two co-hosts, Peter Newman (AHRI, WeedSmart, Planfarm) and Nick McKenna (Planfarm) where they provide an overview of the learnings from the workshops. We hear from Goomalling farmer John Even who attended one of the workshops. He talks about his approach to weed control, including his reasoning behind choosing chaff lining as his primary HWSC management tool this season. The Cropping and Resistance Forum is also coming up in Dalby on December 6. Northern Grower Alliance CEO Richard Daniel is going to be presenting at the forum on sowthistle and wild oat management. He gives an overview of the current issues facing the northern region and gives some details on what he’ll be presenting at the forum.

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.

Harvest Weed Seed Control 101
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.

Australian Glyphosate Sustainability Working Group

The Australian Glyphosate Sustainability Working Group is a collaborative initiative involving research, industry and extension representatives with the purpose of promoting the sustainable use of the herbicide glyphosate in Australian agriculture.

WEEDSMART iOS APP
