Herbicide Behaviour Workshop – Adelaide

March 26 @ 8:45 am - March 27 @ 1:00 pm

A thorough understanding of how herbicides work assists agronomists and growers to maximise herbicide performance. When confronted with a range of weed problems and environmental conditions, the challenge is to optimise 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?

These small group workshops will run for 1.5-days. Participant numbers are limited to ensure active participation and discussion. Many previous workshops have ‘sold-out’, so registration is essential to secure your place. While the workshop content is targeted to experienced agronomists, interested growers are welcome to register.

Cost is $165 ($150 + GST) per workshop.
