This research aims to assess the growth of problem weeds in the current cropping system. By assessing emergence, weed seed production, seed shedding and seed dispersal, the population growth rate of each species will be assessed. Control strategies will be updated, based on a more accurate understanding of the biology and ecology of each species.
