The authors of this paper note in the conclusion: “There are an increasing number of Group H and Group G herbicides becoming available. Care needs to be taken to rotate herbicide modes of action through the cropping rotation to delay the onset of resistance. Other weed management practices such as crop competition, crop topping and harvest weed seed control should be employed where appropriate”.   Please access the full paper via the link below if this research interests you.

The take home messages from this GRDC funded research are below. Please access the full paper via the link below for methodology, references, acknowledgements and discussion.

Take home messages from the paper include:

  • Resistance to pre-emergent herbicides is increasing across southern Australia.
  • New pre-emergent herbicides are becoming available; however, it is vital that these are used appropriately to get the best results.
  • Rotating pre-emergent herbicide modes of action and using other weed management practices will be essential to managing resistance to these new herbicides.
