A winter crop walk was held by SFS at Streatham on Thursday 16 July 2015.
During the day attendees had to opportunity to inspect Stubble Project paddocks as well as harvest weed seed and faba bean trials.
The stubble management project trials established at the properties of Myles Read, Scott Blurton and Gary Meek include: a disc & tine seeder comparison in a range of stubble management systems and a windrow burning, harvest weed seed (with a weed seed mill (PIM) integrated into the header) and stubble burning comparison.
An overview of harvest weed seed management, summer sown winter canola, utilising cover crops to maintain groundcover and summer fallow management was presented by SFS’s Annieka Paridaen.
The day wound up with drinks at the Lake Bolac Hotel.
