Our Team

A multi-disciplinary group researching the biology and evolution of major crop weed species in Australia.

AHRI examines the evolution of weeds to resist herbicides as well as the evolution of weeds to cultural and mechanical farm practices.  This research is supported by a communication and extension model to ensure researched solutions are delivered back to farmers and their advisors.
