stressed weeds Why thirsty weeds are hard to kill

Tue, 20 Jun 2017

Unfortunately, large parts of Western Australia, South Australia and Queensland are as dry as a London newspaper! This edition of AHRI insight looks to address the issue of spraying stressed weeds. We had to go back to 1995 to find some relevant research, but it was worth it. The GRDC funded research conducted by Dave Minkey and John Moore at DAFWA in the 90s is pure gold! In a dry year, we’re often faced with the whole kit and caboodle – moisture stressed weeds, high temperatures, low relative humidity and long durations between rainfall events.

Publications Harvest Weed Seed Control Systems are Similarly Effective on Rigid Ryegrass

Mon, 15 May 2017

Our latest published paper is Harvest Weed Seed Control Systems are Similarly Effective on Rigid Ryegrass by Michael Walsh, Charlotte Aves & Stephen Powles. This field research led by Michael Walsh was in itself a major logistics task. AHRI purchased, with GRDC support, a John Deere combine grain harvester, which was transported across the nation from west to east at wheat harvest time.
