Podcast: Stripper front and chaff deck system explainer and grain storage tips

On the podcast today, you’re joined by co-hosts Jessica Strauss and Peter Newman to find out some practical tips on grain storage and delve into the details of a stripper front and chaff deck system.

Grower Jamie Phillis from Ungarra, in the Lower Eyre Penisula, South Australia joins us on the podcast to tell us about his farming system and approach to harvest. He’s running a Shelbourne stripper front for cereals and a draper front for other crops and he’s using a chaff deck in combination with both of these fronts.

WeedSmart Week 2020 to be in South Australia!

WeedSmart Week is designed to engage growers and advisors on WeedSmart's Big 6 messages. Our objective for this event is for you to learn everything you need to know about weed management. You hear first-hand from growers and agronomists about integrated weed management practices to minimise the impact of herbicide resistance.

This year we ran two events. The first was in Emerald and the second in Horsham. You can click on each event page to look through the photo gallery, watch the presentations and listen to the podcast from the event. We also have a page for our 2020 event which will be held in South Australia. If you'd like to be involved or want to register your interest, you can!
