Weed Genomics Workshop

We are excited to run a half-day face-to-face event on 22 September that will enable more in-depth discussion of weed genomics following the Plant and Animal Genome Conference Australia in Perth, WA.

Multiple scientists from interstate and internationally will be present in Perth with shared interests in weed genomics. This event aims to explore opportunities and priorities for weed genomics research in Australia and beyond. The session will consist of several scientific presentations, building on and adding to those presented at the PAG workshop, and a round table discussion. Participants are welcome to attend the presentations and participate in the discussion.

We would love to see you there to be part of the weed genomics conversation and to learn the latest in manipulating genomics for improved crop yields.

The Weed Genomics Workshop will be followed by an optional tour of the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (AHRI) facilities.

Crop Protection Forum 2023

Knowing how best to respond and manage resistance isn’t always straightforward. With a diversity of research and advice on managing resistance out there, it can be hard to know where to start.

For its 9th year, the Crop Protection Forum will be focused on providing growers and advisors with the most up-to-date information across the insecticide, fungicide and herbicide resistance space, and responding to concerns about management issues.

This will be a full-day event, with speakers from across Australia and local panellists to discuss management issues.

Ticket price includes morning tea, afternoon tea, lunch and access to the recordings post-event. Tickets have not yet gone on sale.

Date and time

Wednesday 6 December 2023, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM


Regular registration: $130.00
Early Bird registration: $100.00
