What is AHRI?


Welcome to The Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (AHRI) homepage! Before you dig into all our publications and podcasts, you might be wondering who we are and what we do. AHRI was a GRDC initiative which launched in 1998 under the guidance of Professor Stephen Powles. In 2018, we celebrated 20 years of GRDC funding, operating as a research group out of the University of Western Australia. You can get a great overview of what we’re all about by watching the video on the right. You can also learn more in this Outlooks on Pest Management article here.

Publications Agricultural Weed Assessment Calculator: An Australian Evaluation

Fri, 11 Dec 2020

Weed risk assessment systems are used to estimate the potential weediness or invasiveness of introduced species in non-agricultural habitats. However, an equivalent system has not been developed for weed species that occur in agronomic cropland. Therefore, the Agricultural Weed Assessment Calculator (AWAC) was developed to quantify the present and potential future adverse impact of a weed species on crop production and profitability (threat analysis), thereby informing or directing research, development, and extension (RDE) investments or activities.
