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.
