No-tillage with stubble retention is a widely used cropping system for its conservation and yield benefits. The no-tillage farming system in southern Australia relies heavily on herbicides for weed management, but heavy crop residues may have a negative impact on the activity of pre-emergent herbicides applied. Any herbicide intercepted by the crop residue may not reach the soil surface without timely rainfall and may dissipate due to volatilisation, photo-degradation and/or microbial activity. Two experiments were carried out to investigate the interception of prosulfocarb, pyroxasulfone, and trifluralin herbicides by wheat residue and retention following simulated rainfall.Download PDF
Metribuzin Resistance in a Wild Radish (Raphanus raphanistrum) Population via Both psbA Gene Mutation and Enhanced Metabolism
This paper identifies multiple mechanisms: as well as psbA gene mutation there is a non-target site resistance mechanism of enhanced metabolism. Of course, we expect multiple mechanisms of herbicide resistance as evident here in both target site psbA gene mutation and non-target site enhanced metabolism resistance.Download PDF
A novel psbA mutation (Phe274–Val) confers resistance to PSII herbicides in wild radish (Raphanus raphanistrum)
Wild radish (Raphanus raphanistrum) is a globally important weed of crops. Two atrazine-resistant wild radish populations (R1 and R2), collected fromtheWesternAustralia grain belt, were investigated for resistance to photosystem II (PSII) herbicides.Download PDF
