Multiple resistant annual ryegrass (Lolium rigidum)

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?

How can you be sure the herbicides you are using this season are going to work?

Are you spending thousands of dollars on herbicides that are giving poor levels of control?

Alternatively, are you using expensive herbicides to tackle resistance when older and cheaper herbicides could still be working?

Have you ruled out certain herbicides thinking you have resistance to them already? This may not be the case.

The only sure way to be certain is to TEST!      More information here!
