Summer weeds can rob subsequent crops of soil nitrogen and stored soil water. They can also reduce crop emergence by causing physical and/or chemical interference at seeding time.

‘Risk-aware’ growers can implement strategies to reduce and avoid unnecessary introduction and spread of weeds.

Nitrous oxide, a highly active greenhouse gas, is released from pastures and crops using nitrogen fertilisers.

Managing manure to reduce emissions can be economically viable for larger enterprises or cooperative facilities that use the captured methane to generate heat and electricity.
