Following the highly successful 'Understanding soil behaviour of pre-emergent herbicide workshops' held over the past 24 months, ICAN Pty Ltd, on behalf of the GRDC, have created a brand new workshop on Understanding post-emergent graminicides (grass herbicides).
This new workshop covers the science that underpins how different post-emergent grass active herbicides work and links this understanding to optimising field performance. The workshop will challenge agronomists to reconnect with their old university biochemistry and then apply this thinking in their everyday herbicide decisions.
While the workshop is designed for agronomists, interested growers are also welcome.
- How grass herbicides work
o Modes of action and plant bio-chemistry
o Entry into the plant
o Translocation and location of key sites of activity
- Linking how herbicides work with optimising performance
o Spray application
o Climate/environment impacts
o Water quality
- Herbicide resistance
o target and non-target site mechanisms explained for the different modes of action
o Addressing key resistance questions such as "I have resistance, but the herbicide still works (sometimes)" and "My resistance test came back negative, but my herbicide still isn't working like it used to."
Workshops will be in a small group format, running for 4 hours. Participant numbers will be limited to ensure active participation and discussion.
These workshops are run on behalf of the GRDC.
Cost is $50 (GST inclusive). Numbers are limited and pre-registration is essential.
