Podcast: New WEEDit Quadro and US research group’s Australian farm tour

This is our last podcast for 2019! It’s been such a great year, covering a broad range of topics related to integrated weed management.

In this episode, hosts, Jessica Strauss and Peter Newman give an overview of what were the most popular podcasts and articles WeedSmart produced in 2019.

In following up from our last podcast where we got an overview of the new WeedSeeker, in this podcast we catch up with Dalby Rural Supplies Precision Ag Specialist Jeremy Jones about the new WEEDit Quadro.

We also catch up with Steven Mirsky. He’s a Research Ecologist with the US Department of Agriculture and is a member of the US group, GROW (Getting Rid of Weeds). The group recently did a national farm tour in Australia, learning about our farming systems and how we control weeds.

WeedSmart Week 2020 to be in South Australia!

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.

This year we ran two events. The first was in Emerald and the second in Horsham. You can click on each event page to look through the photo gallery, watch the presentations and listen to the podcast from the event. We also have a page for our 2020 event which will be held in South Australia. If you'd like to be involved or want to register your interest, you can!

Webinar: Weed biology insights to improve management of Feathertop Rhodes grass and Barnyard grass

Thanks to everyone who joined us for our last webinar of 2019. You can click through below to catch up.

Webinar description:

We can only hope we're close to the end of a long dry spell and we'll soon see a break! And when we do, significant rain will see a massive flush of weeds. What will particularly be problematic is grass weeds – Feathertop Rhodes grass, Barnyard grass, Sweet summer grass and Urochloa (liverseed grass).

Our last webinar for 2019 features Bhagirath Chauhan (pictured above), QAAFI weeds researcher, and Paul McIntosh, AHRI’s northern extension agronomist. They investigate the best strategies to ensure summer crops and the 2020 winter crop are given the resources to achieve higher yields.  Controlling summer grass weeds requires a strategy with interventions at various stages of the growing season.

Bhagirath explains the biology of the most problematic grass weeds and how to employ strategies that provide your summer crop and subsequent winter crop with ideal conditions for growth.

Chaff lining has really taken off

Chaff lining has been a dominant talking point in farming communities as an easy to adopt, low-cost HWSC tool. It has also experienced relatively rapid adoption across the country. Check out our latest video to learn more.

Podcast: Weather forecast accuracy and crop competition trial results

This week on the podcast, we look into how to utilise weather forecasts with Dale Grey and get the latest information on crop competition trials conducted by YP AG from Agronomist Chris Davey.
