PODCAST: Getting mixing right to avoid glugs & efficacy issues

Our latest podcast focuses on Today on the use of pre-emergent herbicides and knockdowns, with a special focus on group Gs.

Associate Professor Dr Chris Preston from the University of Adelaide joins us to talk about how Group G herbicides fit into farming systems and what role they are playing as an increasingly popular tool to control weeds.

We’ll also be catching up with Delta Ag Director and Farm Consultant, Tim Condon. Tim provides an overview of where the season is at, with a focus on the Southern region, including knockdowns and pre-emergent herbicides. We’ll also touch on controlling weeds along fencelines.

Next WeedSmart Week to be in South Australia!

Have you been to WeedSmart Week yet? Farmers and agronomist travel from all parts of the country for our flagship event. We’d love for you to be involved in our next WeedSmart Week event, which will be taking place in Clare, South Australia in September 2020.

WeedSmart Week is designed to engage growers and advisors on WeedSmart’s Big 6 messages. Our objective for this event is for you to learn everything you need to know about weed management. You hear first-hand from growers and agronomists about integrated weed management practices to minimise the impact of herbicide resistance.

Our next WeedSmart Week will be held from Tuesday 1st – 3rd September in Clare, South Australia. Due to the COVID-19 situation and restrictions on public gatherings, WeedSmart Week may not look exactly as it has in the past, however, we are committed to delivering an engaging and informative event for growers and agronomists in South Australia.

To keep in the loop with our events, sign-up to our blog on the right of this page. This is where we'll first let you in on further details about the program and release of tickets. If you’d like to be potentially involved as a presenter on our forum day or would be open to having the group visit to see first-hand how you are tackling weeds on your farm, we’d love for you to get in touch with us directly by emailing us here: weedsmart@uwa.edu.au

Webinar: New chemistry - What's new, what's coming & how to keep them for longer with Greg Condon

There is a range of new pre and post-emergent herbicides coming to the market in the coming seasons which will broaden weed control options and use patterns. As new chemistry becomes available it is crucial for all involved to protect the longevity of any new products and minimise the risk of resistance.

In this webinar, WeedSmart’s Southern Extension Agronomist Greg Condon explored the opportunities these new herbicides provide growers and how we can protect these herbicides using the WeedSmart Big 6.
