Paddock searches for skeleton weed this summer are set to begin, with landholders reminded to keep watch for the weed, which can tie up nitrogen and soil moisture, and cut crop yields.
Different weed management options can be explored using the Weed Seed Wizard.
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
The Weed Seed Wizard is a computer simulation tool that uses paddock management information to predict weed emergence and crop losses.
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.
Home gardeners are asked to be on the lookout for a thread-like, parasitic weed after it was discovered in a backyard vegetable patch in the Wheatbelt.
The Weed Seed Wizard is a computer simulation tool that helps you understand and manage weed seedbanks on your farm.
Hyssop loosestrife (Lythrum hyssopifolia) is a widely distributed weed in the south west of Western Australia.
Growers have eroded their ryegrass seedbanks by 99.3% from an average of 183 ryegrass/m2 in 2001 to 1.29 ryegrass/m2 in 2018 across the 27 focus paddocks.
This Management Guide has been designed to assist landholders and increase their capacity to manage and eradicate skeleton weed infestations on their properties and to prevent further spread within
