Abstract

The story which follows tells how Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) from the U.K. changed the method of planting cereal crops used in W.A. for 40 years, by replacing cultivation with a herbicide spray. The main reason for cultivation is to prevent the growth of weeds in the crop. There are other benefits to be gained.
