Combining weed efficacy, economics and environmental considerations for improved herbicide management in the Great Barrier Reef catchment area
(Science of the Total Environment, 2020)
The current Australian sugarcane industry transition toward adoption of an ‘alternative’ herbicide strategy as part of improved environmental stewardship is increasingly complicated by recent farming system, regulatory and ...
Developing an alternative herbicide management strategy to replace PSII herbicides in the Wet Tropics area : final report 2014/050
(Sugar Research Australia Limited, 2018)
Impact of nutgrass on sugarcane yield
Research carried out in Mackay over 2009-2010 in plant cane confirmed the impact of nutgrass competition on sugarcane yield and profitability. Trials were conducted on both dryland and irrigated sites, with similar yield ...
Efficacy and environmental runoff impact of alternative pre-emergent herbicides to diuron applied on trash blanketed ratoons
The efficacy of alternative pre-emergent herbicides to diuron applied just after harvest on green trash blanketed ratoons was investigated in three field trials in the wet tropics, Far North Queensland. The study also ...
Herbicides and the water quality conundrum
Herbicidal impact on the health of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) lagoon came to the forefront in 2009 with the Queensland Government’s Great Barrier Reef Protection Amendment Act 2009 and the concurrent review of diuron by ...
Impact of application depth and slot closure on runoff losses of imidacloprid
Imidacloprid represents the Australian sugar industry’s best canegrub-management tool, but it has been detected in many water bodies, including groundwater, creeks, rivers and marine environments, posing a potential risk ...
Factors affecting the distribution of the vine species in sugarcane: results of GIS surveys in Central Queensland
Extracted from the Proceedings of the Australian Society of Sugar Cane Technology, Volume 37, 2015.
Evaluating commercially available precision weed spraying technology for detecting weeds in sugarcane farming systems
Precision spraying systems which use optical sensing technology to detect green weeds were evaluated for their suitability for use in sugarcane farming systems. The Weedseeker® spraying system was specifically evaluated ...
Optimising spot spraying for controlling Guinea Grass : ASSCT peer-reviewed paper
Established Guinea grass stools are commonly found in our sugarcane-farming system. No registered herbicides that are both effective on perennial Guinea grass stools and selective to sugarcane are available. Directed-spray ...
Can directed-spray strategies control Guinea Grass stools? : ASSCT peer-reviewed paper
Guinea grass is a troublesome perennial grass in our sugarcane farming system. Despite a range of effective pre-emergent and early post-emergent herbicides, optimum spray windows are often missed and established Guinea ...
