" Over the Fence North: Machinery investment delivers at Jambin 23 June 2014 Soil testing and a $350,000 investment in new machinery is already paying dividends as part of a new more precise and efficient approach to farming for Central Queensland grain grower Paul Heit... Mr Heit, who farms at Jambin with his father John, said the new strategy had delivered significant labour savings during planting in early May, plus the prospect of an improved result at harvest by better matching fertiliser to soil needs and sowing in a tighter window at the right point of the season... Technology to reduce spray drift GCTV: Drift Reducing Technology..

The outcomes of the project provide tools that offer agronomic, technical and financial confidence for those who are contemplating an investment in no-till... No-till has proved to be at least as profitable as conventional tillage in recent years and the evidence suggests that production areas under no-till have the capacity to increase in gross margin as the system develops... Research into the impact of long-term no-till on nitrogen demand that was funded as part of this project has demonstrated that in some circumstances less N is required and higher grain protein is achieved after multiple years of no-till...
