    GRDC Podcast: Herbicide residues in soil – what is the scale and significance?

    Increasing herbicide use over the last two decades has led to concerns over the potential effects herbicides (and their residues) have on soil health.

Increasing herbicide use over the last two decades has led to concerns over the potential effects herbicides (and their residues) have on soil health.

This concern has led to significant, national GRDC investment over the past five years into the potential impacts of increased herbicide use on key soil biological processes.

This is being achieved by benchmarking the level of herbicide residues in cropping soils and generating new knowledge about the fate, behaviour and risk of herbicides to productivity and soil biological function.

In this podcast we hear the latest project from NSW Department of Primary Industries research scientist, Dr Mick Rose.
