Understanding post-emergent & non selective grass herbicides workshop (Cobram)

Event Name
Understanding post-emergent & non selective grass herbicides workshop (Cobram)
End Date
Duration
4 hours
Description

If you have not yet participated in the 'Understanding post-emergent grass herbicides' workshop, or if you are looking for a ‘refresher’, this is your opportunity to participate. These workshops have been exceptionally well received by both new and experienced agronomists.

This workshop looks at the science that underpins how different post-emergent grass active herbicides (including glyphosate and paraquat) work and optimising field performance.

The workshop delves into herbicide biochemistry and how this knowledge applies to everyday herbicide decisions.

Topics include:

  • modes of action (herbicide biochemistry)
  • how herbicides enter the plant and maximising uptake (formulation, application & adjuvants)
  • where the herbicide needs to get to within the plant and how it gets there (translocation)
  • how herbicides are broken down by crops and weeds (selectivity and metabolism)
  • interactions between different herbicides, adjuvants and water quality (synergy, antagonism, compatibility
  • known resistance mechanisms explained for different modes of action.

While the timing and the content of the workshops are targeted at agronomists, interested growers are most 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.

If you would like to register multiple people from the same organisation, please contact us for a group booking.
