Chaff deck developer Colin Hutchinson chats weed control

Colin Hutchinson

Colin Hutchinson developed the chaff deck and has had great success with it. He farms out of Tammin in which is in the southern part of Western Australia. Take a listen to find out more about how he’s managed to keep the weeds at bay and the reasons behind why he believed the chaff deck is a great tool.


Paraquat resistance with Steve Powles

With it being double knock season, paraquat might be a herbicide you’ll be adding to your program. Steve Powles chats with Jessica Strauss about how he first discovered paraquat resistance and the implications of this. He also imparts some handy tips for herbicide use during seeding. Take a listen!


Roberto Busi explains research into 2,4-D resistance in wild radish

Our latest published paper is Inheritance of 2,4-D resistance traits in multiple herbicide-resistant Raphanus raphanistrum (wild radish) populations. In this podcast, Roberto Busi explains the findings of his study.


Glufosinate resistance explained with Adam Jalaludin


Adam Jalaludin discusses his PhD work into Crowsfoot Grass resistance to glufosinate.


Can simulation modelling be used to explain low rates of pre-emergent herbicide resistance?

Gayle Somerville, pre-em

Herbicide resistance, it’s a tricky beast! Simulation modelling is looking to help us understand it better and in shorter time frames though (phew). AHRI PhD Candidate Gayle Somerville explains the findings in her paper “Why was resistance to shorter-acting pre-emergence herbicides slower to evolve?”.


Roberto Busi explains pre-emergent herbicides

AHRI researcher Roberto Busi explains his research and its implications on using pre-emergent herbicides. Timely advice for growers and agronomists out there!
