Testing control of annual ryegrass in the HRZ using faba beans, pre-emergent herbicides and desiccation locations
Aims

To assess cultural control practices in combination with pre-emergent herbicides for the management resistant ARG at the Lake Bolac research site.

Key messages
  • Annual ryegrass (ARG) establishment and seed head numbers increased significantly under the faba bean herbicide strategies used in 2016
  • There were no significant differences between herbicide strategies in 2016, with the legacy of past years’ management strategies not creating any difference in yields this year
  • Over the five years of the trial, RT Canola in 2014 was been the best option to maintain ARG seed head numbers
  • ARG seed head numbers increased by 35% in 2016 following the high cost weed strategy (strategy C) in combination with HWS prototype mill
  • ARG seed head numbers increased by 148% (low cost, strategy A) and 171% (mid cost, strategy B) in 2016
  • Effects of pre-harvest desiccations in 2016 will not be evidenced until emergence in 2017
