Abstract

During the past 10 years, this project tested 23 barley and 51 wheat varieties with 19 and 34 registered herbicides,
respectively. It concentrated on new varieties and herbicides.
The research highlighted that Northern Region (NR) wheat and barley varieties differed considerably in their sensitivity to these herbicides.
Overall, 9 per cent of wheat variety x herbicide combinations and 6 per cent of barley variety x herbicide combinations had significant yield losses (3 to 38%) from herbicides at recommended rates and crop stages. In addition, 21 to 23 per cent had significant yield losses from herbicides at double rates, indicating a narrow margin of crop safety.
