Description

This half-day workshop is supported by L.I.F.T. and is designed to give growers the knowledge and skills to correctly identify summer weeds early and select the best herbicides and non-herbicide techniques to manage them while preparing for the 2019 cropping season.

Topics covered:

  • better spray application in summer. The new regulations on the use of 2,4-D and how it affects summer spraying. How to get the best control and stay within the regulations. Which herbicides will work in a tank mix in a very coarse spray quality?

  • benefits of early summer weed control

  • weed identification with special reference to locally important weeds – a mix of theory and practical. Live plants will be available for attendees to practise identification of small plants.

  • best management practices for summer weeds - with Alexandra Douglas, DPIRD Katanning
