Grazing effects did not drive yield loss in black Vertosol soils.. Tracking collars were used to create a map of Livestock Residence during the grazed period (Figure 1) and clods were collected from 10-20cm depth and scanned using CT to assess changes in porosity (Figure 2)... On reflection we believe that wetting and drying cycles in Vertosols will 'even out' even extreme management events given enough time, water and heat...

Maize kernals showing the milk line at different stages.. While grain can physically be harvested at up to 25% moisture, this is not recommended as drying costs will be high... When the milk line is half way down the length of individual grains, its milk line score is said to be 2.5 (0 before the line becomes visible at the top of grains and 5 once the line is at the base of the grains)...

To minimise losses consider: cutting as low as practical to gather as many of the pods as possible using reduced ground speeds to keep shatter loss to minimum (4 - 5 km/h) using relatively low cylinder speeds to reduce grain damage, and select relatively high fan speeds to effectively clean the sample using belt augers wherever possible to minimise cracking and damage to the grain... Both oil content and protein level are usually calculated back to a 12% moisture content basis... Separated hulls are included...
