Webinar Series: Chaff carts, sheep and seed destroying mills

Harvest weed seed control is one of the Weedsmart Big 6 practices and growers are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing the right tool. One of the key questions when deciding which tool to adopt is ‘do you have sheep?’ Growers with sheep may consider the benefits of grazing chaff dumps, where those without may be more inclined to consider a seed destroying mill.

Join us for our first webinar on Tuesday, June 5th when WA Advisor, Ed Riggall answers the Q – How to profit from the chaff? Then on Tuesday, June 12th we will discuss the pros and cons of the Destructor and Terminator with Ben White from the Kondinin Group – join us!

WeedSmart Podcast

With many parts of the country facing little to no Autumn rainfall events so far, many growers are dry seeding. ConsultAg Agronomist Geoff ‘Fos’ Fosbery joins us in this podcast and provides some great tips on ensuring you get dry seeding right, including tips on herbicide application, such as trifluralin. We also hear from WA Farmer Kit Leake, who has been dry seeding for many seasons. He shares his insights and explains how he plans out his program well in advance.
