The term 'residual' applies to a number of herbicides that have a long lasting activity in the soil. These herbicides are often applied directly to the soil prior to planting crops, pre-emergent.
In 2020 the Department is conducting over 300 Grains Research trials across the state from Kununurra in the north to Esperance in the south.
An opportunistic weed time of removal trial was implemented in Jerramungup following 66mm in February 2017.
This project aims to determine the spread of emerging summer weeds and deliver new knowledge on the biology and management of these emerging summer and winter weeds, with an overall aim of increasi
The viability of annual ryegrass seed can be reduced substantially by desiccation, pre-harvest spraying or swathing of canola depending on the product and timing.
Testing for herbicide susceptibility allows you to determine what herbicide options are still available to control weeds on your farm.
Brome grasses (Bromus spp.) are highly competitive weeds, most problematic in wheat crops.
Wild radish (Raphanus raphanistrum) is highly competitive in crops and can cause a yield loss of 10-90%.
An 11 year study showed that narrow row spacing and harvest weed seed destruction (that is, residue burning each autumn) reduced annual ryegrass seed production.
Silver grass is an annual grass occurring in both cropping and grazing regions across Australia. There are several species, the most common being Vulpia myuros and V. bromoides.
