Growers attitudes towards area-wide management of weeds in the Riverina

Journal Article


Abstract


  • University of Wollongong researchers continue

    to study weed management in the Riverina,

    Sunraysia and Darling Downs regions.

    Riverina growers were most concerned

    about the financial cost of weed management

    and the presence of weeds on their land,

    including those with herbicide resistance.

    Growers from the Riverina largely agreed

    that benefits can come from working together

    on weeds, such as increased awareness of

    weeds and herbicide resistance.

    Common concerns among Riverina growers

    about area-wide management include time

    spent in meetings, limited options for organic

    growers and being restricted to specific

    herbicides.
