WEBINARS FOR 2018
Thanks so much to Ed Riggall for kicking off our “Webinar Series: Chaff carts, sheep and seed destroying mills”. Webinar 2 of the series, comparing iHSDs and Seed Terminators, is next Tuesday with Ben White (June 12). Make sure you sign-up!
Harvest weed seed control is one of the Weedsmart Big 6 practices and growers are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing the right tool. One of the key questions when deciding which tool to adopt is ‘do you have sheep?’ Growers with sheep may consider the benefits of grazing chaff dumps, where those without may be more inclined to consider a seed destroying mill. Get the details and sign-up here.
Comparing the iHSD + Seed Terminator
Ben White joins us for the second webinar of our series “Chaff carts, sheep and seed destroying mills”! Ben is an agricultural engineer and the Manager of Research and Development for the Kondinin Group. During harvest 2017 Ben visited a number of grain growers in WA who were using either the Seed Terminator or the […]
Chaff as Sheep Feed
We have known for a long time that towing a chaff cart at harvest is a great tool to drive down the weed seed bank. What we missed for a long time, was that the chaff dumps can be a great source of sheep feed. Ed Riggall is a WA based consultant who specializes in livestock management and grazing systems. Ed’s passion is the integration of cropping with livestock which led him to investigate grazing chaff dumps as a source of sheep feed.
Use pre-ems to maximise winter crops in the South
In our second webinar for our webinar series on pre-ems, we look at how hitting weeds before the crop phase provides many more shots at the weeds. Presenter Chris Preston, from the University of Adelaide, explains how to give your crop the best start and diminish the weed seedbank with pre-emergent herbicides.
Use pre-ems to maximise winter crops in the North
In our first webinar of this series on pre-ems, we ask Mark Congreve from ICAN Rural the question: why do things go wrong with pre-ems? Herbicide choice and farming system are factors to consider, with crop safety being top of mind.
Spray wisely and well to maximise efficacy | Bill Gordon
In Webinar 2 from our Summer Spraying Series ‘Summer spray season challenges’, we hear from Spray Application Specialist, Bill Gordon. Correct spray set-up and operation can guarantee efficacy, decontamination and reduce drift. Watch the webinar to learn more.
Effect of formulation and environment on dicamba volatility
In this webinar, Dr Tom Mueller presents the most recent findings on dicamba behaviour under field conditions and offers some parallels for Australian growers to consider with regard to 2,4-D behaviour and volatility. Watch the webinar to learn more!
Rick Llewellyn describes the new Brome RIM
Brome grass has become one of the most costly grass weeds in many major grain growing regions. In conjunction with AHRI, CSIRO will shortly launch Brome RIM which can help growers develop the most profitable strategies for managing Brome grass populations. Rick Llewellyn explains how it will work.
Pulse crops provide extra punch against weeds
Pulses can be an important weed control tool, particularly when it comes to herbicide resistant annual ryegrass. In the past, pulses have had the reputation as the ‘weak link’ in crop rotations; however, evidence suggests pulses can provide a powerful punch in a weed control program.
Frost risk mitigation and growing a crop worth frosting
Webinar Series: Kick off early to get the edge on weeds Webinar 2: Frost mitigation Frost is devastating and unfortunately, more frequent events are predicted to occur right up until 2030. So, what can you do about it? Webinar 2 of our series, Growing a crop worth frosting, addresses how climate change means more weather events like experienced […]
Choosing optimum crop seed traits
Webinar Series: Kick off early to get the edge on weeds Webinar 1: Choosing optimum crop seed traits Along with choosing clean, large crop seed to promote early vigour, planting depth and time of planting are factors affecting crop competitiveness. NSW DPI’s Rohan Brill investigates the performance of open-pollinated and hybrid canola cultivars across varied […]
