In part 2, Ray Harrington and Peter Newman get into the details of how to set up your harvester to collect weed seed this harvest.
Attack the weed seed bank
In this two-part webinar series, we focus on getting a plan in place to capture and destroy weed seeds at harvest. In part 1, Peter Newman (AHRI) and Rod Messina (Mulluwa grower) discuss how to level up your narrow windrow burning and attack the weed seed bank. In part 2, Pete chats to chaff cart veteran Lance Turner (Corrigin grower) on how to incorporate this tool into your system.
It’s a numbers game
Herbicide resistance is not a problem if you have no weeds. Our panel discusses the range of options available to help manage the weed seed bank, as well as general strategies to help promote the long term sustainability of herbicides.
Post emergent herbicides
In part 1, Peter Newman (AHRI) and Grant Thompson (Crop Circle Consulting) discuss the results of their wild radish research in Western Australia. In part 2, Pete asks Peter Boutsalis (Uni of Adelaide) if there is any value in rotating the post-emergent herbicides clethodim (Select) and butroxydim (Factor).
Setting crops up for success with Dr Chris Preston
In part 1 of this webinar series, Peter Newman (AHRI) discusses choosing and applying the right pre-emergent herbicide with Chris Preston (Uni of Adelaide). In part 2, Pete chats to Deirdre Lemerle (Graham Centre, CSU) about using your crop to fight weeds.
Win the war against weeds: grazing chaff dumps
In this two-part webinar series, Peter Newman (AHRI) discusses the benefits of grazing chaff dumps with York grower Andrew Boultbee and diverting weed seeds onto permanent tramlines with Esperance grower Mark Wandel.
