GRDC Herbicide Behaviour Workshop (Parkes)

Event Name
GRDC Herbicide Behaviour Workshop (Parkes)
Start Date
End Date
1 day

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.
