Flaxleaf fleabane (Conzya Bonariensis) has been a prolific weed of zero till farming systems in the northern region for over 10 years and can now be found in zero till farming systems in all mainland states.

This webinar highlights the ecology of fleabane and why this is driving the spread of fleabane across the nation, glyphosate resistance status and weed control tactics that have been successfully employed in the northern region to manage this weed.
