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.

The herbicide mixture is greater than the sum of herbicides in the mix

Tue, 1 Dec 2020

AHRI researcher, Dr Roberto Busi is no philosopher, but he has recently published some significant research that shows that Aristotle knew a thing or two about herbicide resistance despite being born over 2000 years before the first herbicide. Amazing! The message from this research – never assume that a herbicide mixture will fail even if there is resistance to both components of the mix.
