We catch up with Chris Preston in Mildura as part of the Area Wide Management of Weeds project. Glyphosate resistance has been identified as a key issue when managing highly dispersive weeds and taking a ‘good neighbour’ approach to weed management has been identified as a key practice to getting on top of highly dispersive weeds.
In the Sunraysia region we are focusing on fleabane, ryegrass and sow thistle control and the tactics that can help support broadacre cropping and horticultural producers to get on top of these weeds.
