Corowa Memorial Hall

Event partners

This event is an activity of the Demonstrating ryegrass control strategies project funded by GRDC.

Thanks to all the speakers for sharing their expertise on the day.



This workshop is an opportunity for farmers and agronomists to hear from experts on the topic of herbicide resistance across the region. Hear from researchers John Broster and Peter Boutsalis on the survey findings of resistant species and a project update from Agrifutures. Greg Condon, local Weedsmart agronomist will share various strategies that can be used to reduce the overall weed burden.

The workshop will be followed by a field walk to the Riverine Plains and Uncle Tobys research paddock, looking into practices that aim to reduce ryegrass populations over time. This is a new project funded by the GRDC, where discussion is encouraged to determine various weed control options for the following year.
