SA farmers share how the Big 6 fits in their farming systems & why any amount of HWSC matters
September 22, 2020
Today on the podcast we hear from two South Australian farmers, Russell Zwar and Tom Gardner, who were part of our recent Clare WeedSmart Week event. They tell us all about how they apply the Big 6 in their farming systems.
We also hear about some new research into bromegrass. The latest research supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation shows that any amount of harvest weed seed control is better than none.

WA Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development research officer Catherine Borger joins us on the podcast to tell us more.
