Grain producers have become more proficient at many annual weeds in Australian cropping systems retain their seed at maturity and thus are collected by the harvester. Harvest weed seed control (HWSC) is enabled by a suite of management practices all of which target the seed of weeds during harvest. Current HWSC systems include narrow windrow burning, chaff lining, chaff carts, bale direct and seed destruction (Walsh et al. 2013).
