Understanding post-emergent grass herbicides workshop (Pittsworth)
Due to high demand, ICAN are planning additional herbicide workshops across the northern grains region on behalf of the GRDC, starting with southern Queensland and northern NSW in November. These workshops have been exceptionally well regarded by both new and experienced agronomists, so this is your opportunity to participate if you have missed one of the workshops or if you are looking for a ‘refresher’.
This workshop covers the science that underpins how different post-emergent grass active herbicides work and links this understanding to optimising field performance.
The workshop delves into herbicide biochemistry and applies this thinking to everyday herbicide decisions.
- modes of action (herbicide biochemistry)
- how post-emergent herbicides enter the plant and what we can do to maximise uptake (formulation, application & adjuvants)
- where the herbicide needs to get to within the plant and how it gets there (translocation)
- how the herbicides are broken down within the crop and the weed (selectivity and metabolism)
- interactions between different herbicides, adjuvants and water quality (synergy, antagonism, compatibility)
- known resistance mechanisms explained for the different modes of action
While the workshops are targeted at agronomists, interested growers are welcome to attend.
Cost is $50 (GST inclusive) per workshop. Workshops will be in a small group format, running for 4 hours. Participant numbers will be limited to ensure active participation and discussion. Pre-registration is essential.
Online registration is available If you would like to register multiple people from the same organisation, please contact us for a group booking.
