The complexities of 2,4-D resistance explained by AHRI researcher

This week on AHRI Snapshots, we’re chatting with AHRI researcher, Dr Danica Goggin on her latest findings into 2,4-D research. The findings have been published in her paper: “Plasma membrane receptor-like kinases and transporters are associated with 2,4-D resistance in wild radish”. This paper was recently published in the Annals of Botany, Volume 125. Peter Newman recently wrote AHRI insight on this paper and has done an explainer video. Pete said it was one of the trickiest papers he’s had to get his head around. Danica joins us to break down this complex paper.

Focus paddock project shows WA is having a win with weed control

In this interview, we chat with DPIRD grain researcher, Martin Harries, about a six-year focus paddock survey he led. The survey collated data from 184 paddocks spanning 14 million hectares of cropping land in Western Australia. It was all made possible with a DPIRD and GRDC investment and the collaboration of 13 farming groups; including the Facey, Liebe, Mingenew-Irwin groups and WANTFA. Martin has recently published the weeds aspect of this research as part of his PhD and reported that we’re having some great success with weed control in Western Australia.

AHRI Snapshots How the weed chipper came about and how it fits into farming systems

On this AHRI Snapshots, we learn all about the weed chipper! We chat with agricultural engineer Dr Andrew Guzzomi from the University of Western Australia’s School of Engineering about the weed chipper. Andrew, together with his colleague Dr Carlo Peressini, engineered the weed chipper’s development as part of a multidisciplinary team. The concept of the Weed Chipper came about when a group of growers were discussing weed control in a fallow field in southern Queensland – this prompted the idea of a rapid response tyne to chip out weeds.

Why delaying sowing isn’t necessarily the best option for ryegrass control

On this week’s AHRI Snapshots we chat with Dr Gurjeet Gill. He’s an Associate Professor in Agronomy & Weed Science at the School of Agriculture, Food and Wine at the University of Adelaide. Gurjeet, along with his colleague Ben Fleet recently completed some research that says if you don’t get a knockdown in, it’s not a problem.
