Southern Weed Management Workshop - Bundaberg, Isis & Maryborough cane growers

Event Dates


12:30PM — 3:30PM Thursday 11 August, 2022

Point and shoot that weed out of your farm!

Bundaberg, Isis and Maryborough cane growers are invited to join SRA’s Weed Scientist, Emilie Fillols, for an informative workshop about weed management on your farm.

Emilie has been focused on optimising weed management strategies in sugarcane for more than a decade now. Her recent project includes identifying alternatives for effective weed and pest management options that are less costly and have less impact on environmental water quality.

In this customised practical workshop for the Southern sugarcane farming region using relatable farming scenarios, Emilie will share with you how to take control of weeds before they take control of your farm:

  1. Quickly identify weeds with the digital tools you already have in your pocket
  2. Choose herbicides mindful of weed pressures, your farming system and alternative chemical groups.
  3. Practice your skills on a real life scenario.

Refreshments provided. Please RSVP for catering purposes by Monday 8 August to SRA District Manager Southern, Lisa Devereaux ldevereaux@sugarresearch.com.au 0456 590 497
