The importance of cleaning seed

For many growers, planting seed is just around the corner, but to ensure quality seed is going in the ground, it’s important to grade and clean it.

In this podcast, we hear from seed cleaning contractor, David Bach, who runs Toowoomba Grain and Storage. He explains the process of cleaning seed, why it’s imperative and also provides some handy tips on grain storage.

We also hear from Michael Meara who farms just south of Toowoomba in the Felton area. He shares a story about when he used a neighbour’s seed when he ran out of his own and the consequences of that decision!
