Initiative 70

Investigating Herbicide Resistance

Pasture weeds are a major issue for mixed farmers, and chemical control options for mixed farmers are becoming limited due to increased incidence of herbicide resistance in common pasture weeds in Australia and the mixed farming zone.

What are we doing?

This project will evaluate herbicide resistance in common weeds across southern pasturelands, in an effort to predict which districts require more intensive management and herbicide rotation.
