Soil behaviour of pre-emergent herbicides in Australian farming systems

Soil behaviour of pre-emergent herbicides

When devising a weed control strategy, pre-emergent herbicides can be a valuable additional tactic to help drive weed numbers down. This manual was developed to provide advisers and growers with the background science and information to better understand how pre-emergent herbicides work and behave in the soil.
