S06E19 Weed seed impact mill update with Ben White and farmer case studies

On this edition of the podcast, we’re doing our annual overview of how weed seed impact mills performed over harvest.

We feature farmer case studies from each of our mill partners, including HSD, Redekop and Seed Terminator.

The farmers we hear from are Steve Lord (Goomalling, WA – Redekop); Tyson Schutz, who is pictured above with Dad Mick (Grass Patch, WA – Seed Terminator); and Jon Beasley (Franklin River, WA – HSD).
