AU$2.25m for Queensland weed research

The Grains Research and Development Corporation, which is partly funded by the Australian government, announced on 20 December that it has invested AU$2.25 million in a research programme focused on herbicide-resistant weeds.

The five-year study will be led by Steven Walker, a weed specialist from the Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation at the University of Queensland.

The project will be a collaboration between the university, the Queensland department of employment, economic development and innovation and the NSW department of primary industries.
