Title: The environmental behaviour of herbicides in Australian viticulture / by Guang-guo Ying.
Author: Ying, Guang-Guo
Issue Date: 1999
School/Discipline: Dept. of Environmental Science and Management
Abstract: The herbicides norflurazon, oxadiazon, oxyfluoren, trifluralin and simazine used in South Australian viticulture were assessed for mobility and degradation through a combination of laboratory and field experiments. Sorption, leaching and dissipation rates were measured, as was presence in shallow groundwater. The fate of herbicides from vine to wine was also investigated, tests being conducted on herbicide residue in both white and red grapes and presence in wine. A proposal for good environmental management of herbicide use in vineyards to minimise the effects of herbicides was also developed.
