Strategic tillage has more to do with weed control than you think.

Join Pete Newman, Greg Condon, Paul McIntosh and Chris Davey for a discussion on strategic tillage and its role in weed management and crop health.

Sharing their perspectives and experiences from different regions of Australia, they highlight the diverse soil constraints faced by farmers, from acidity issues in Central New South Wales to non-wetting soils in Western Australia and emphasize the importance of understanding regional soil conditions and tailoring tillage practices accordingly to maximize crop productivity and combat weed pressures.
