Choosing and applying the right pre-emergent herbicide
Choosing and applying the right pre-emergent herbicide can be difficult, particularly if herbicide resistance is becoming a challenge in a no-till system. Dr Chris Preston, University of Adelaide (UA) explains the chemistry of pre-emergent herbicides, how they work and what’s best for your operation.

Given the significant up-front cost of buying good quality seed, it’s tempting to cut back on seeding rates to minimise costs.
Lead scientist and director of the Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovation at Charles Sturt University, Professor Deirdre Lemerle takes the opposite view.
She’s calling on growers to consider using high seeding rates and competitive cultivars to suppress weeds and achieve savings through reduced herbicide costs, more reliable herbicide performance and resistance management.
