disc system

Catalogue: GRDC Updates
Growers are increasingly moving towards a zero-till system using a disc seeder, which is changing some aspects of the farming system and the recommendations advisers provide to their clients... Disc seeders also allow higher levels of stubble to be retained, particularly at narrow row spacings, which has been a key driver of their adoption... It is important to plan your fertiliser strategy carefully, in many cases separating fertiliser from seed, or top dressing a portion of it in a separate operation...

Machinery efficiency showcased in CQ.. Tour organiser Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) principal technical officer Maurice Conway said the tour primarily attracted young growers keen to employ new technologies to generate time and labour savings and maximise crop production opportunities... The disc system is now incorporating on-the-go unit downforce monitoring and adjustment, section control to shut off rows to reduce overlap, variable rate planting and fertilizer application with maps overlaid from historical yield data, soil type and observation," he said...

Disc seeding system design and settings, including operating and sowing depths and travel speed, all appear to influence behaviour of pre-emergence herbicides and can play a critical role in minimising crop damage... The use of residue managers ahead of single disc blade openers has shown to significantly improve the level of crop safety... Preliminary results from trials undertaken last year showed that disc seeding system setup also has a critical role in the level of wheat crop damage from pre-emergence herbicides...

No pre-emergent herbicide in Australia has on-label recommendations for disc seeders.. The study, conducted by the University of Adelaide and University of South Australia with support from the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), aims to refine the industry's understanding of the use of disc seeders in conjunction with pre-emergent herbicides and inform future on-label advice... University of Adelaide researcher Sam Kleemann said although growers increasingly recognised the advantages of disc seeders, many pre-emergent herbicides' on-label advice forbids use alongside disc seeders, and chemical companies often won't support the use of disc seeders because of a lack of information around the machinery's impact on crop safety...

Supported by Research Update sponsored by.. In summary there was no "concerning" level of seed loss observed at any trial or timing, correlating well with the yield data... In summary, yield loss as a result of delayed windrow timing assumedly through shattering has not been demonstrated except in one extreme case with very late timings with colour change in excess of 100%...

If you have a blackleg problem and are growing a susceptible cultivar your first action should be to change to a cultivar with higher levels of resistance... In comparing while many farm decisions are made intuitive versus logical analytical under the influence of a DSS which provide learning reasoning he suggests the either/or approach to on a topic, they are not necessarily used every time the dichotomies is destructive and goes on to say a decision is made...
