GRAIN growers are being asked to act smarter on herbicide use to counter resistance in problem weeds.
The Grains Research and Development Corporation and other industry groups will next week launch WeedSmart, a campaign aimed at encouraging grain growers to better manage herbicide-resistant weeds.
Advisers attending last week’s GRDC research update at Ballarat were told about the new campaign.
GRDC southern panel chairman David Shannon said the WeedSmart campaign centred on the concept that there was a tool box for managing weeds.
