Imtrader Ed.14 – R&D Update SA & VIC

The Horticulture season has started with several trials on a range of targets and crops such us onions, grapevine, cabbages, turf, avocados and almonds.

Finalizing our broadacre program has been a rewarding activity with great results over our test sites reflecting the quality of Imtrade products.

Our range of Pre-emergent herbicides are performing well and we are looking forward to presenting the results to the DURUM Grower association in March.

With a great diversity of crops and geographical spread, our SA Scientist (Sebastion Recabarren) has been on the road enjoying the countryside, although traffic in the Adelaide Hills can get a bit busy with supercars at times… but that’s OK.

A great turn up at the crop protection forum with an emphasis in the development of resistance across weeds, insects and fungi, and the need for an integrated approach with chemical control as an important tool in our systems.

Imtrade is always interested in keeping up to date with the latest advances and emerging technologies, such us gene drive technology with the potential to reverse resistance in natural populations.

Imtrade Australia is a proud supporter of the Modbury Special School Garden Initiative and is looking forward to working with them throughout 2019.
