To evaluate and demonstrate the opportunity to apply variable rate application of Balance herbicide to different soil types within a field

In Queensland, the runoff of PSII inhibitor herbicides (in particular diuron and atrazine) is a major concern due to their potential impact on the Great Barrier Reef. Runoff from farm fields is a potential source of these herbicide residues.

Balance is an alternative soil residual herbicide to replace PSII herbicide products such as Diuron in situations of high grass weed pressure.
