Welcome to the WeedSmart Podcast Portal!
Harvest is done and dusted for the majority of growers across the nation. In this Christmas edition podcast which is our last for the year, we catch up with Nick McKenna from Planfarm, who caught up with growers in WA’s Esperance region on their use of chaff lines and tram lines. We also hear from farmers in that region. Our Northern Region Extension Officer Paul McIntosh officers his insights into Grain Sorghum too. It’s our last podcast for 2016, so come along for the ride!
Harvest Part 2
In this second podcast focusing on harvest Peter Newman and Jessica Strauss discuss harvest losses and chaff carts, talking to guests Kondinin Group’s Ben White, and Agpro Management owner Ed Riggall. For more details on chaff carts, take a look at AHRI Insight #74 here. You can find out more details on the Research Report from March 2014 which was discussed with Ben White here.
Harvest Part 1
With harvest kicking off across Australia, we check in with Warren Treasure who is using the iHSD. John Broster talks about the research he and Michael Walsh conducted on catching weed seeds and we hear from Ray Harrington on the history of the Harrington Seed Destructor and where it is today.
Frost, floods and 2,4-D
Over the last few weeks the parts of Western Australia have been impacted by frost, while some growers in the East have had to deal with floods. In this first AHRI WeedSmart podcast, we look at what this means for growers, as well as checking in with some new research on 2,4-D.
