Event Details

At our first face-to-face field walk in six months, we will be looking at a significant weedicide trial DFA is running in conjunction with Mallee Sustainable Farming and Frontier Farming Systems at Daryn Gardner’s property.

The trial is investigating alternative herbicide options to prevent seed set and/or control weeds that may have survived glyphosate application in a vineyard. The principle weeds of interest are ryegrass and fleabane. The trial is part of a bigger project on area wide management of weeds. Learn more about it in this short YouTube clip.

Join us to hear from Michael Moodie (principle of Frontier Farming Systems) and Dr Chris Preston (weed management professor at the University of Adelaide).

We will also talk with Dustin Gargas from Ceres Imaging, which is providing NDVI, water stress and thermal imaging for some of our demonstration sites. Dustin will join us live from California to give us an overview of what they provide and a peek at the images we have collected.

Registration is required as we will be running a COVID-safe event. Email Stuart at projects@driedfruitsaustralia.org.au or call DFA on (03) 5023 5174.
