Herbicide tolerance, Wanilla (Lower Eyre Peninsula), Tooligie (Upper Eyre Peninsula, South Australia locations
  • To determine the crop safety of applying metribuzin herbicide to commercial lupin varieties.
Key messages
  • The early season climatic events of waterlogging (Wanilla) and hail damage (Tooligie) were not
    conducive for small scale field trial studies, but reflected wide scale industry issues from these
  • Although this meant that some measurements could not be taken, reasonable results were
    still gained from these trials.
