CRT NSW : Winning Autumn Deals 2012
There’s always better value at CRT. www.crt.com.au There’s always better value at CRT. Crop Protection TechUpdate–Autumn2012 Issue 1 Autumn 2012 Tech Update Fleabane management starts now Agronomists and farmers around Australia all recognise one weed as causing more problems than any other across a range of situations including in- crop and fallow management – fleabane. New products in the development pipeline to be released in early 2012 include Sharpen® from Nufarm. Sharpen has proven to be highly effective throughout fleabane’s various growth stages and can be used with a number of other mix partners depending on other weeds in the paddock. Dow AgroSciences will also be releasing a new product to combat fleabane later in 2012 called Fallow Boss. Key to managing fleabane is the development of effective plans for problem paddocks. This would include the use of herbicides with residual activity which act as pre-emergents when applied in-crop for winter crops such as wheat and canola, and appropriate knock-downs in fallow for summer crops. Currently, the best control of fleabane has been through the use of double knock tactics. The increasing number of glyphosate resistant fleabane populations means local knowledge for the correct mix partners is essential. Research carried out by Queensland’s Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation (DEEDI) found that the efficacy of the frequently used glyphosate plus Surpass® mixes in fallow can be increased by as much as 40% with the use of 2L/ha of SPRAY. SEED® in a double knock situation. Additional research has also shown the effectiveness of Tordon 75D in the mix with glyphosate. Followed by SPRAY.SEED in a double knock, this will provide up to 99% control even with older fleabane plants. DEEDI has also looked at the results of using residual herbicides, including atrazine, diuron, Glean® and Balance® in a double knock situation in fallow. Results showed that when these herbicides were used with 2,4 -D or Tordon 75D, emergence of new plants could be nil depending on the products used. © The State of Queensland, Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation, 2011.
