Reducing snail contamination a priority this harvest Grain growers in South Australia face a heightened risk of snails contaminating grain this harvest, resulting in potential downgrades and clogging of machinery... Options to reduce snail contamination are limited to minimising the intake of snails into the header, maximising the separation of snails and grain within the header, and post-harvest grain cleaning. ".. Sheet metal (punch-hole and expanded mesh) sieves are usually more effective than louvre sieves in removing snails but have a lower cleaning throughput harvest speed may need to be reduced to avoid overloading and grain losses...

The South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) Entomology Unit warns that snails present above cutting height in the canopy or in windrows can enter the header during harvest, potentially leading to clogging of machinery and grain quality downgrades... "At this time of year, the aim is to minimise the intake of snails into the header, maximise the separation of snails and grain within the header, and where necessary, clean harvested grain to minimise the number of snails eventually entering the grain sample," Mr Perry said...
