Proactive weed management is very important to produce healthy and saleable nursery stock in a cost-effective manner. Weeds can reduce the rate of crop growth, crop saleability, increase crop management costs and may spread pests and disease in the nursery and through the supply chain.
Effective weed management strategies are relatively simple but can be challenging to consistently implement.
In this webinar, we will discuss cultural, physical and chemical strategies to prevent weeds from establishing in production nurseries. Management strategies which can reduce the likelihood of herbicide resistance and phytotoxicity will also be recommended.
Date: Wednesday, 28 July
Time: 10am-11am (AEST)
The webinar will be presented by Andrew Manners and John Duff from Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF). Both have extensive knowledge in the areas of pests, diseases and crop health management within production nurseries.
The ‘Resourcing, supporting and assessing biosecurity in nursery production’ (NY20000) project has been funded by Hort Innovation, using the nursery industry research and development levy and contributions from the Australian Government.
The project co-funded by Queensland Government (DAF).
