Win the war against weeds: grazing chaff dumps

Grazing chaff dumps over burning

Andrew Boultbee is a grower from York in Western Australia and presents his thoughts on grazing chaff dumps over burning in this webinar.

Andrew explains to host AHRI’s Peter Newman that instead of burning the chaff heaps, he grazes them during summer.

The sheep flatten the chaff heaps to a tiny pile and help to redistribute some of the nutrients in these heaps back out to the paddock.

Diverting weed seeds onto permanent tramlines

Peter Newman and Esperance grower Mark Wandel discuss the latest practice of diverting weed seeds onto permanent tramlines.

As an add-on benefit to a controlled traffic system, diverting chaff from the harvester into compacted wheel tracks or tramlines gives harvested weed seeds a tough environment to grow and spread.
