Herbicides play a vital role in integrated weed management programs.
Herbicides can be applied by a variety of means including boom sprayers, aerial spraying, misters, blanket wipers, rope wick applicators, weed seekers and back-pack sprayers.
The most accurate way to estimate the weed population of a paddock is to count the number of plants in an area of known size at a number of locations.
Herbicide resistance is the inherited ability of an individual plant to survive a herbicide application that would kill a normal population of the same species.
In-crop weed competition causes losses costing around $1 billion per annum for Western Australia.
