Experts will come together to discuss the latest research developments and options for controlling weeds, diseases and pests at this year's Crop Production Forum, to be held as a face-to-face event on 8 December.

The forum will be hosted by the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (AHRI), a collaboration with the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) based at The University of WA - in partnership with the Centre for Crop and Disease Management (CCDM), Curtin University, and sustainable agriculture research organisation cesar.

The forum will bring together researchers, agronomists, resellers and growers to tackle important questions around crop disease, pest and weed control management. The forum will feature presentations on resistance evolution, minimising the development of resistance, expected trends and genetics research.

The one-day forum will be held in the Wesfarmers Lecture Theatre at The University of WA Business School on December 8, 2020.
