What’s the cost of HWSC for you? With WeedSmart’s Peter Newman

The ‘do it yourself’ narrow windrow burning chute seems cheap at the time, but what is the true cost?

It depends… on crop type, yield, area, number of harvesters and so on.

The costs of harvest weed seed control (HWSC) tools have been calculated using best estimates to calculate the effect on yield and crop area and are limited to cereal crops.

Pete Newman, WeedSmart Western Extension Agronomist has developed this interactive model and will step you through the benefits of different strategies and how to use the HWSC cost estimate tool to measure the impact to your cropping program.
