An Investigation Into Improved Methods Of Weed Control In Kabocha & Pumpkins
This project involved the screening of four herbicides for selective control of weeds in pumpkin and kabocha crops. Command, Authority, Frontier and Brodal were all assessed in replicated trials over a period of 3 seasons at a number of sites in northwest Tasmania. As an outcome of this work, a registration submission for Command was submitted to the NRA in December 1996. The commercial use of this product represents a significant breakthrough, as it will be only one of the few products registered for use in pumpkins and other cucurbits.
