Pulse Australia partners with Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative

Pulse Australia partnered with the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (AHRI) in 2015 to promote sustainable weed management options for the summer cropping regions.

AHRI was established with GRDC support to provide research and extension to encourage sustainable weed control in Australia. One of the key strengths of AHRI is their ability to distill the latest research in this field to easy-to-understand actions for growers and advisors.

Pulse Australia's Paul McIntosh leads this project for the summer cropping regions of Australia, and is the local champion in this region, providing regular communication and liaising with researchers to ensure the latest initiatives are shared with the northern region grower and advisor community.

Paul is looking to increase the level of awareness of herbicide resistance issues and to drive solutions for more crop, less weeds in the summer cropping areas.

If you would like to receive the fortnightly newsletter, AHRI Insight, and other regular updates from the AHRI team, please register directly through this link.

If you have developed sustainable weed management practices in your farming system and are willing to share your experience with other farmers, please contact Paul.

Paul is also available to speak at advisor and grower group meetings to further outline AHRI research work, and specifically, detail options for sustainable weed management options in this region.

Please don't hesitate to contact Paul in relation to improving sustainable weed management in Northern NSW and Qld.
