Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.


Dr Gurjeet Gill is Associate Professor in Agronomy & Weed Science at the University of Adelaide. He works on understanding weed behaviour in cropping systems and management of herbicide resistant weeds and other difficult to control weed species. Current research projects include seedbank biology of emerging weeds, behaviour and management of locally important weeds and pre-breeding for weed competitive wheat genotypes. Dr Gill has also undertaken extensive research into weed management and development of cropping systems in developing countries.
