Point and shoot that weed out of your farm!

CANEGROWERS and SRA invite Rocky Point growers to join SRA’s Weed Scientist, Emilie Fillols, for an informative workshop about weed management on your farms.

Emilie has been focused on optimising weed management strategies in sugarcane for more than a decade. 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.

There will be plenty of time for discussion, feedback and to respond to any actions for the Rocky Point District.

Dinner will be served from 6.00pm. Please advise your attendance by RSVP to Kate Armitage at kate_armitage@canegrowers.com.au or 5546-1481 by Tuesday, 2 August 2022 for catering purposes.
