Personal profile

Biography

Ms Owen completed a B.Business Agriculture (Hons) at Curtin University, Muresk Institute in 1995. Mechelle then worked at the Department of Agriculture on various wheat agronomy projects before commencing at WAHRI in 2001.

Roles and responsibilities

My main area of research is the identification and evaluation of herbicide resistant weed populations in Western Australian cropping regions. This includes survey work to evaluate the frequency and distribution of herbicide resistance in a number of crop weeds (wild oat, ryegrass, brome grass, barley grass, conyza and wild radish). I am involved in the characterisation of herbicide resistant populations where resistance to a herbicide is rare e.g. glyphosate. Other surveys and research includes; farmer surveys on the extent of weed seed contamination present in crop seed sown in Western Australian grain-belt farming systems.

Funding overview

Grains Research and Development Corporation

Research

Conducting surveys to establish the frequency and distribution of herbicide resistance in major weed species across the WA grainbelt. Monitoring glyphosate resistance in annual ryegrass.
