Improving sowing system technologies for no-till cropping

Plain text source: 
Technology adoption would be greatly accelerated with detailed knowledge of the factors affecting no-till sowing performance made available to grain growers... The project will underdertake fundamental research aiming to: - understand the mechanics of soil movement and soil throw with narrow point seeding technologies, - improve the performance of disc seeders in heavy soils and stubble conditions... The project will be undertaken by a broad team of researchers collaborating with the Western Australian No-Till Farming Association (WANTFA), the South Australian No-Till Farmers Association (SANTFA) and the Conservation Agriculture Alliance of Australia and New Zealand (CAAANZ), incorporating a national survey on disc seeder performance and issues, fundamental studies of the performance of disc seeders and tine seeders...
