|Title:||Better management of 'Sonchus oleraceus' L. (common sowthistle) based on the weed's ecology||Contributor(s):||Widderick, M (author); Walker, S (author); Sindel, Brian Mark (author)||Publication Date:||2004||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/11526||Abstract:||'Sonchus oleraceus' L. (common sowthistle) was recently identified in a survey as the most common weed of the sub-tropical grain region of Australia. In addition, the weed was identified as having a moderate risk of developing resistance to glyphosate, while populations already have resistance to Group B herbicides. Hence, 'S. oleraceus' is a weed that not only requires better management but also strategies that reduce the risk of resistance to herbicides. Weed ecology was investigated closely to assist devising management strategies. In particular, seed germination, emergence, persistence, dormancy, and production, as well as plant morphology, competition in crop, and response to tillage were studied. The characteristics that are important for better management of this weed are the weed's prolific seed production, the ability of this seed to germinate all year round and the ability of the weed to grow and produce seed across diverse environments. An integrated and sustainable approach to management of 'S. oleraceus' should include growing competitive crops, strategic tillage, follow up herbicide applications, and rotation of herbicide groups especially for Group B and M herbicides.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||14th Australian Weeds Conference, Wagga Wagga, Australia, 6th - 9th September, 2004||Source of Publication:||14th Australian Weeds Conference Papers and Proceedings: Weed Management - Balancing People, Planet, Profit, p. 535-537||Publisher:||Weed Society of New South Wales||Place of Publication:||Wahroonga, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||070308 Crop and Pasture Protection (Pests, Diseases and Weeds)||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.caws.org.au/awc/2004/awc200415351.pdf||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 498
