Global Herbicide Resistance Challenge conference

Dr Ian Heap, International Survey of Herbicide Resistant Weeds, USA

Just how widespread is the world’s problem with herbicide resistant weeds? Which countries have it, in what species, and how fast are new cases being found?

Ian Heap brings a unique perspective. He maintains a comprehensive website which records new cases of herbicide resistance evolution world-wide.

Dr Chris Preston, University of Adelaide, Australia

“We are not going to fix herbicide resistance by relying on herbicides.”

It’s clear to Chris Preston what herbicide resistance has taught us. In a frank and lively presentation, he challenges growers and researchers to think and act in terms of population management. “The real trick is… how do we have low populations so resistance doesn’t matter?”

Peter Newman, Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative, Australia

What does it take to achieve ryegrass populations close to zero in cereal crops? Peter presents the results of 13 years’ work in 30 focus paddocks, some using herbicide-only and others with herbicides plus harvest weed seed control. There’s no clearer way to show the value of harvest weed seed control than tracking ryegrass populations against resistance management tactics year-to-year.

Dr Neil Harker, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

Adoption of herbicide resistant (HR) canola in Canada is almost universal. But are Canadian farmers making use of the resistance management possibilities it offers? With three different systems, HR canola opens several in-crop spray options which aren’t available in alternative crops. Neil Harker says “Our (herbicide resistant) canola has given us a resistance reprieve but if we abuse it and overuse it, it won’t last long.”

Dr Jenna Malone, University of Adelaide, Australia

New cases of herbicide resistance are being detected each year. Dr Malone summarises the latest cases detected in Australia and digs deeper to find the resistance mechanisms involved.

Dr Michael Walsh, AHRI, University of Western Australia

The Australian experience with herbicide resistant weeds in dryland cereal cropping has fed an innovative culture of weed management.

Dr Walsh shows how herbicide resistance developed in Australia and outlines the latest research comparing Australian methods of harvest weed seed capture, including pivotal research leading to the commercialisation of the famous Harrington Seed Destructor. He works with the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (AHRI).
