Herbicide Behaviour Workshop (Katanning)

March 26 @ 8:30 am - March 27 @ 12:00 pm


Thorough understanding of how herbicides work assists agronomists and growers to maximize herbicide performance. When confronted with a range of weed problems and environmental conditions, the challenge is to optimize the results in the field.

Knowing what weeds will be controlled from a herbicide application is the easy bit – it’s on the label.

More challenging questions include:
  • Why do herbicides perform or fail in some situations?
  • Critical comments on the label. Why do they exist and how were they developed?
  • How do adjuvants and water conditioning agents work? What should be used, when and why?
  • How does resistance affect different herbicides? What strategies can be used as resistance emerges?
  • How do residual herbicides work and what influences their breakdown?
