Soil amelioration changed the game for Esperance farming family
August 4, 2021
On this edition of the podcast, we’re providing a preview on our WeedSmart Week in Esperance event, which is now only two weeks away!
We hear from Beaumont farmers, Phil Longmire, and son Tom. Tom will be presenting at WeedSmart Week, providing a farmer experience on the forum day.
Phil, Bindy and Tom Longmire run a family farming business based in Beaumont, 110 km ENE of Esperance in a 425-450mm rainfall zone.
Soil amelioration and boundary mapping are just some of the approaches which have really helped them win the war against weeds.
We also catch up with Andrew Messina. Late last year we caught up with Andrew about the trials for Bilberry’s spot spraying technology which took place on his farm. He is going to give us an update and a preview of what he’s going to share on the Innovation Panel at WeedSmart Week Esperance.
