Group B residual herbicide tolerance, MRZ Mid North (Pinery), South Australia locations
  • To assess the effect of various residual group B chemistries on growth and yield of tolerant and susceptible lentil varieties, and
  • To confirm in-crop tolerance of some group B chemistries applied post-emergence on Group B herbicide improved XT varieties and advanced lentil breeding lines compared with conventional standards.
Key messages
  • Response of lentils to herbicide treatments varied with seasonal conditions, method of herbicide incorporation, stubble coverage, soil texture and fertility.
  • Treatments that showed high plant damage generally incurred high yield losses, however low levels of chlorosulfuron plant damage still resulted in significant yield loss in some trials
