GRDC Herbicide Behaviour Workshop (Adelaide)
A thorough understanding of how herbicides work assists agronomists and growers to maximise herbicide performance. When confronted with a range of weed problems and environmental conditions, the challenge is to optimise the results in the field.
Knowing what weeds will be controlled from a herbicide application is the easy bit – it’s on the label.
More challenging questions include:
- Why do herbicides perform or fail in some situations?
- Critical comments on the label. Why do they exist and how were they developed?
- How do adjuvants and water conditioning agents work?
- What should be used, when and why?
- How does resistance affect different herbicides? What strategies can be used as resistance emerges?
- How do residual herbicides work and what influences their breakdown?
Come along to this 1.5 day GRDC supported workshop on the science underpinning how herbicides work. Participants will leave with a better understanding of the key factors dictating herbicide performance and what can be done in the paddock to ensure weed control is maximised.These small group workshops will run for 1.5-days. Participant numbers are limited to ensure active participation and discussion. Previous workshops have ‘sold-out’, so registration is essential to secure your place.
While the workshop content is targeted to experienced agronomists, interested growers are welcome to register.
Cost is $165 ($150 + GST) per workshop.Workshops commence at 8.45am for a 9am start on Day 1 and will finish by lunchtime on day two.
Please note: As ICAN requires interstate travel from Queensland to deliver these workshops, they will only proceed if state borders entry/exit is permitted at the time of the workshop. Should we need to postpone any workshop(s), registrants will be able to hold their spot for a rescheduled workshop OR obtain a refund.
