Developing knowledge and tools to better manage herbicide residues in soil
This project will develop new knowledge and tools to better understand the factors regulating herbicide persistence and bioavailability, giving farmers increased confidence in crop choice, timing of sowing and herbicide management to ensure soil and crop performance is not limited by herbicide residues.
This project is funded by the High Performance Soil CRC, and is being delivered by SARDI Minnipa Agricultural Centre.
