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.
Control methods for Grader grass (Themeda quadrivalvis) a declared pest in Western Australia.
Control methods for neem (Azadirachta indica A.Juss) a declared pest in Western Australia.
Hyssop loosestrife (Lythrum hyssopifolia) is a widely distributed weed in the south west of Western Australia.
'Crop-topping' is the late application of herbicides to prevent weed seed-set.
Spray-topping is a very effective method for managing annual grass seed set in pastures.
Following the extended dry conditions this autumn, weeds are now emerging and becoming a challenge for growers to manage in paddocks that may have patchy crops, crops with staggered emergence or no
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.
Herbicide performance can vary greatly depending on a number of factors. These can include compatibility of herbicides, water quality, sprayer decontamination and controlling stressed weeds.
Testing for herbicide susceptibility allows you to determine what herbicide options are still available to control weeds on your farm.
