Aims:

Barley grass continues to be a persistent grassy weed in low rainfall farming systems and current farming practices have selected for increased seed dormancy. This change in seed dormancy has resulted in Barley grass germinating later, and being much harder to control with knockdown and pre-emergent herbicides. In 2018 a range of herbicide strat… read more
