GRDC herbicide behaviour workshops - 2021

Registration Form

1.5 day workshops for grains advisers

Workshop locations for 2021

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?

ICAN is delivering a series of GRDC supported workshops for agronomists which go into 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.

Workshop outline

Workshops will be customised for each location to focus on regionally important herbicides and management issues under the following structure.
How herbicides work – disruption of key enzyme systems within the plant
Leaf entry of post-emergent herbicides. Including the influence of environmental conditions and the importance of adjuvants
Post-emergent herbicide translocation and metabolism
Herbicide resistance and resistance mechanisms
Maximising performance of the key post-emergent MOAs
Pre-emergents – influence of stubble, volatilisation, photodegradation and incorporation
Pre-emergents – relationship with soil type and soil moisture
Herbicide degradation, plantbacks and crop safety
Discussion around pre-emergent herbicides, tillage and planter type
Maximising the performance of key pre-emergent herbicides

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.
