Nearly a year ago, WeedSmart Extension Officer Greg Condon co-hosted a podcast with Jessica Strauss on disc seeding and stripper front systems. It’s a bit more of an obscure system, but it sure generated a lot of interest and is currently our most played episode, with more than 750 listens. Given the interest, we thought we’d put together another podcast of similar ilk, but this time focusing on disc seeding itself.
Why not take a listen?
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.

WeedSmart Week Wagga Wagga 2017 was a great success. Thank you to the stakeholders, organisers, presenters and everyone who helped pull the event together.
We recorded many of the presentations and you can watch them by clicking through if you missed out on attending. We'll have lots of podcasts, articles and more coming out over the coming weeks as well, so keep an eye out!
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.
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.
