A useful in vitro bioassay for evaluation of weed suppression provided by cover crop residues

Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

Legume cover crops provide rotational diversity resulting in reduced erosion and improved soil health, nitrogen availability, weed control, and moisture retention. Legume covers have also been shown to successfully suppress weeds due to their physical and/or chemical properties. We utilised a unique in vitro soil bioassay (Weston and Mueller1989) to further evaluate the suppressive potential of selected legume residues, performed in combination with replicated field studies.

OtherThe Weed Society of New South Wales Inc., on behalf of the Council of Australasian Weed Societies Inc., will be hosting the 21st Australasian Weeds Conference in the popular Sydney beach side suburb of Manly from 9 - 12 September 2018.  An assortment of field trips will be hosted on Thursday 13 September 2018.

This biennial conference carries on a long tradition of bringing the weed management community together to discuss new developments and share information about cutting-edge and best weed management practices.

The conference attracts over 250 delegates from across Australasia and globally.  Delegates will come together to network with peers, engage with industry sponsors, listen and participate in presentations and field trips on a variety of topics including; 
- New technologies in weed management.
- Biological, mechanical, and chemical weed control and research.
- Herbicide resistance.
- Weeds of crops and pastures.
- Environmental weeds and Weeds of National Significance.
