Herbicide resistant weeds are a major problem in the cropping regions of Australia. The rice industry is not different to any of the other cropping industries in this regard. Weed control in the rice industry has been dependent on few herbicides and therefore the identification of an underlying level of herbicide resistance in weeds, aids growers and advisors in their understanding and designing strategies for herbicide resistance management.

This report presents baseline data on the extent of herbicide resistance in five weeds of rice, to three of the common herbicides used for their control across the rice growing regions of southern NSW.
