Brome grass management. Part II: paddock monitoring across the Mid-North locations
Aims

To investigate selection of the right rotation and herbicide strategy for brome grass management.

Key messages
  • Many techniques can be employed to deplete the brome seedbank but an integrated weed management (IWM) approach reduces reliance on herbicides (ie. imi’s).
  • In the best managed paddocks, two years of effective management reduce brome grass seedbank to <50 seeds/m2 (8-32 seed/m2 ).
  • The most effective rotations for reducing brome populations incorporated oaten hay, break crops, legumes and CLF cereals.
