Managing giant rat’s tail grass and other weedy grasses in pasture: learning the latest from Florida
In this free BeefConnect Webinar to be held 12.30 pm – 1.30 pm AEST on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, University of Florida pasture weed specialist Professor Brent Sellers will discuss how producers manage smutgrass, a relative of giant rat’s tail grass, in sown tropical pastures in the US.
Professor Sellers is on a study tour to compare US and Australian practices of weedy Sporobulus grass management on cattle production.
In this webinar, Brent will discuss the herbicide and pasture management programs used in Florida to reduce the impact of smutgrass.
This is relevant to producers in Queensland and other parts of Australia where there are significant problems with Sporobulus grasses in sown and native pastures.
Join Professor Brent Sellers (Specialist – Pasture weeds) University of Florida along with host Greg Bath (FutureBeef).
