Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (AHRI)

Research

The core role of the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (AHRI) is strategic and applied research to minimise the adverse impact herbicide resistance and crop weeds have on Australian cropping.

Research activities include the biology and population ecology of major weed species through to cultural and herbicide management strategies. Fundamental research occurs on biochemical and molecular resistance mechanisms as well as genetically modified (GM) crop issues.

AHRI is responsible for a broad range of projects that are funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and the Australian Research Council (ARC).
