Australian rice production relies upon rapid direct seeding techniques that inevitably encourage simultaneous establishment of a suite of aquatic and terrestrial annual weeds.
Effective herbicides are critical to ensuring weed free crops are established in order to reach their full yield potential and achieve maximum water use efficiency.
Herbicide resistance is an on-going challenge to rice producers. Many current practices lead to rapid shifts in the weed spectrum in favour of herbicide resistant biotypes. Identifying novel mode of action herbicides to rotate or overlay was the major purpose of this research project.
