Herbicide resistance in no tillage farming systems. David Minkey Herbicide resistance in no tillage farming systems. David Minkey Presentation Transcript

  • Herbicide Resistance In No Tillage Farming Systems Dr David Minkey david.minkey@wantfa.com.au www.wantfa.com.au
  • Sustaining no-till & glyphosate D’Emden et al 2009
  • Resistance Surveys Frequency of herbicide resistance in Western Australia Mechelle Owen, Michael Walsh & Stephen Powles Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative www.ahri.uwa.edu.au
  • Crop variety testing zones 30 plus sites visited in each region Sampled every 5km H
  • Multiple Resistant Annual Ryegrass Populations
  • Multiple resistance Wild Radish 84%H1/M1/L1 65%H2/M2/L2 39% H3/M3/L3 28%H4/M4/L4
  • Years to resistance for different herbicides - USA 35 ALS Inhibitors 30 25Resistant species 20 ACCase inhibitors 15 Triazines 10 5  Glyphosate 0 0 10 20 30 40 50 Years of use
  • (Roundup) glyphosate @ 450g/haR S
  • (Gramoxone) paraquat @ 200g/haR S
  • (Hoegrass) diclofop @ 1000g/haR S
  • (Verdict) haloxyfop @ 52g/haR S
  • (Fusilade) fluazifop @ 100g/haR S
  • (Achive) tralkoxydim @ 152g/haR S
  • (Sertin) sethoxydim @ 100g/haR S
  • The Rise and Rise of GlyphosateAustralian Herbicide Resistance Initiative University of Western Australia
  • Glyphosate: a once in a life time herbicide“Glyphosate is as important toworld agriculture as penicillin is to human health” Powles 2010
  • 2009 Global Herbicide Sales Source: Cropnosis Ltd Atrazine Nicolsulfuron Clodinafop FenoxapropS-MetalochlorMesosulfuron 2,4-D Acetochlor Glufosinate Mesotrione Paraquat Glyphosate 0 1000 2000 3000 4000 5000 600 Sales ($m)

  • How to be inherbicide resistance
  • Corn, Cotton and Soybean BeltCorn 40 m haSoybean 30 m haCotton 5 m ha
  • Corn, Cotton and Soybean BeltCorn 40 m ha (85% glyphosate resistant)Soybean 30 m ha (95% glyphosate resistant)Cotton 5 m ha (95% glyphosate resistant)
  • RR soybean removed previous herbicide diversity
  • GLYPHOSATE BELT
  • Palmer Amaranth inin RR Cotton Palmer Amaranth RR Cotton
  • Learning from GM cropping in Canada Cereal, Canola Corn/Soy
  • Learning from Canada• Wheat the major crop• GM Canola dominant but with diversity - Liberty Link Canola - Clearfield Canola - RR Canola – 80% Diversity in crops and herbicides= Sustainability
  • Glyphosate Resistance in Australia 133 cases of resistant ryegrass State No of populations SA 49 NSW 48 WA 22 Vic 14 Other Species - Liverseed grass (3) - Awnless barnyard grass (18) - Windmill grass (1) - Fleabane (8) Photo: Andrew Heinrich
  • Glyphosate resistance• Not limited to broadacre situations resistance hasbeen found in: • Vineyards • Orchards • Roadside verges • Railway lines • Irrigation channels • Airstrips• Fencelines/crop margins – using glyphosate asonly method for weed control will lead to evolutionof resistance GLYPHOSATE STILL WORKING ON MOST FARMS – KEEP IT THAT WAY Photo: Andrew Heinrich
  • Probability of glyphosate resistance 1 Glyphosate every yearProbability of resistance 0.8 Glyphosate/paraquat rotation Glyphosate then paraquat sequence 0.6 0.4 0.2 0 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 Year Neve et al 2003 weed research Cumulative probability distributions for predicted evolution of glyphosate resistance in annual ryegrass in a 30-year simulation of a Wheat-Lupin-Wheat-Canola rotation with no tillage at sowing
  • Harvest weed seed mgt, double knock!• Up to 85% of ryegrass seed “harvested” can be collected in the chaff fraction
  • Burn Narrow windrows
  • HSD – double knock Photo: Piers Blake
  • Bale everything!!

  • Targeting weed seeds allowscrop production to continue - Chaff collection - Harvest residue baling - Windrow burning - Chaff destruction
