A study of zero-till innovations in Argentina has identified technology that also has the potential to improve crop establishment and yields for Australian growers... Mr Gould says for every extra 100mm of stored moisture in a rainfall zone of 600 to 650mm, typical zero-till growers visited in Argentina are achieving an extra 1700 kilograms per hectare of maize, 1400kg/ha of sorghum, 800kg/ha of wheat and 650kg/ha of soybeans... Mr Gould says strong and well-coordinated links between government agencies and researchers, machinery manufacturers, extension providers and the commercial sector are central to the success of zero-till in Argentina...
