Herbicide Susceptibility Testing and Professional Management Advice

Don't know which herbicides still work in your paddocks? Don't want to waste tens of thousands of dollars by spraying ineffective herbicides?

AGRONOMO and Plant Science Consulting P/L are offering a "WORLD FIRST" professional herbicide susceptibility testing and management advice service to make you money and save your time.

Herbicide resistance weeds are now driving the farming system in many areas, reducing crop yields and limiting enterprise options for growers. Don't be painted into a corner and forced to make management decisions that don’t suit your goals?

Keep ahead of the game and test and get professional management advice from one of the county's leading weed management experts. Quicktest and seed testing are available. Quicktest can be used pre and post sowing to quickly determine why those weeds haven't died. Management decisions can be made this season to get those problems under control.
