Windmill grass (Chloris truncata) is a native species and is the tenth most common summer weed species in the Western Australian wheatbelt.
‘Risk-aware’ growers can implement strategies to reduce and avoid unnecessary introduction and spread of weeds.
This management strategy provides an opportunity to control weed seed set in the pasture and during harvest.
Wild oats (Avena fatua and A. ludoviciana) represent a large cost to cropping. Wild oats are highly competitive and when left uncontrolled can reduce wheat yields by up to 80%.
Wild radish (Raphanus raphanistrum) is highly competitive in crops and can cause a yield loss of 10-90%.
