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!
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.
Get in on the action
There's videos, audio, PDF downloads and quizzes to help you get the most out of our Pre-emergent Herbicides 101 course. Choose your own level of involvement.
The course is broken into four parts:
- Section 1: Understanding Pre-em Basics
- Section 2: Using Pre-ems in a Winter Cropping System
- Section 3: Using Pre-ems in a Summer Cropping System
- Section 4: Bonus materials
Pre-Emergent Herbicides 101 also includes:
- Podcast interviews with Chris Preston, Mark Congreve and Peter Newman
- Live webinar with Chris Preston, Mark Congreve and Peter Newman
Time required: You can complete the core modules of the course (Sections 1-3) in about 3 hours. If you'd like to go through all of the bonus materials as well (Q&A discussion, webinar replay, podcast interview and the resource library), give yourself another 2-3 hours.
Remember: You have lifetime access, so take the course at your own pace.
