This course will take you through the in’s and out’s of pre-emergent herbicides.
We’ll cover why pre-emergent herbicides are an important tool in Australian cropping systems and how pre-emergents help you to manage herbicide resistance in crop weeds. (Especially in a world where 11 of the 17 modes of action have documented resistance.)
Brought to you by
We recognise that the herbicide-only era is over.
And it’s also important we address how to best use the herbicides we DO have access to.
Pre-emergent herbicides have a few tricks that you have to understand to get them to work correctly.
We'll run through the basics of pre-emergent herbicides and then look at how they can be used in both winter and summer cropping systems.
If you're an agronomist and you'd like to deepen your understanding of how pre-emergent herbicides work, this is the course for you!
How does it work?
Want to understand pre-emergent herbicides in three hours? Join our experts Dr Chris Preston (University of Adelaide) and Mr Mark Congreve (ICAN) as they take you through all you need to know about getting the most out of pre-emergent herbicides.
