Metribuzin tolerance of barley varieties locations

To evaluate the tolerance of recently released and commonly grown barley varieties to metribuzin.

Key messages
  • No barley varietal differences in tolerance to metribuzin applied either pre-sowing or post-emergent have been detected in 3 years of trials on sandy loam soils at Walpeup and Woomelang.
  • Crop damage from metribuzin has been known to occur in some commercial situations so label advice should be adhered to.
