With sporadic rainfall falling across the country in recent weeks, its important to remember the key period for effectively managing weeds in cropping paddocks and preparing seedbeds for sowing is sneaking up on us very quickly this year.
Herbicide resistance in today’s environment is a major issue affecting crop and pasture production across all states in Australia. For producers that are facing prolonged periods of drought, sporadic and insufficient rainfall can cause increasingly tough weeds, and this can pose a challenge if those weeds have become resistant to herbicides.
The most compact way to optimise soil health!
BROOKFIELD will continue to live by their brand ‘Farming the Future’ when they unveil the all new D40 ChainBar, a new compact model with a 4m working width at Henty Machinery Field Days this year.
As we near the end of harvest and head into a fallow period prior to sowing summer crops, effective weed management is key to ensure soil moisture is preserved. Grain Central reported that “removing summer weeds in the months after winter crop harvest will be one of the biggest contributors to improving water use efficiency, minimising soil nutrient losses and reducing disease carryover for 2019 crops.”
