Effect of wide rows on herbicide safety in lupins locations
Aims

To answer the quesiton 'Can higher herbicide rates be used with wide row establishment in lupins?'

Key messages
  • There was very little activity from the soil active herbicides due to conditions at the site.
  • The idea that higher rates of soil active herbicide might be able to be used with the wide row system was not available to be tested due to the overall lack of response to the herbicide treatments.
