Webinar: Integrated weed management – a practical approach for vegetable growers

Thursday, 26th November 2020

Time: 1:00 – 2:00 pm AEDT (including Q&A session)

Integrated weed management (IWM) is vital for getting on top of weed problems in vegetable production.

A key outcome of effective IWM in vegetable production is the reduction of the weed seed bank (the number of viable weed seeds present in the soil) to ensure that the weed burden is minimised.

Scope:
This webinar will cover the key tactics and principles of IWM by giving examples of successful IWM.
