An upcoming workshop will give agronomists and growers the opportunity to understand how herbicides work to help benefit the performance of their crops.
Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)'s herbicide behaviour workshop will be delivered by Independent Consultants Australia Network (ICAN) in Gunnedah on October 31 and November 1.
It will give attendees a better understanding of "the key factors dictating herbicide performance and what can be done in the paddock to ensure weed control is maximised".
"Weeds are one of the largest costs to grain growers and herbicide resistance is a key driver of increasing costs," ICAN weed specialist Mark Congreve said.
"When confronted with a range of weed problems and environmental conditions, the challenge is to optimise the results in the field."
A number of workshops have already been held across the cropping region this year, which Mr Congreve said were customised for each location. This was to focus on regionally important herbicides and management issues.
The workshop content is targeted for experienced agronomists, but interested growers are also welcome to register.
The Gunnedah workshop will be held from October 31-November 1 at the band hall. Numbers are limited to ensure active participation and discussion, so registration is essential.
The cost is $165 (including GST) and events start at 8.30am on day one and finish by lunchtime on day two. For more information or to register go to https://bit.ly/2mu5GYb.
