Have you ever thought of trying to farm without the use of glyphosate??  Farmers in some parts of the world are currently experiencing this reality.  The Western Applied Research Corporation, in association with the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (AHRI) will be conducting a half-day seminar highlighting proven weed control methods against some of the strongest herbicide resistant weed threats in the world.  This seminar will provide proven research results and practical on-farm experience in the implementation of strategies that target improved weed management while enhancing profitability.


Experienced farmers, entrepreneurs and research personnel from the Western Australia cropping belt will lead our local workshop to share their experiences and insight.  Ray Harrington, inventor of the Harrington Seed Destructor, will be the highlighted speaker and discuss his journey on the development of a new weed control tool.
