Using PA you can now: zone the site using historical data such as imagery, yield, and soil type; precisely place trails using your RTK GPS; change treatments automatically using variable rate functionality in most new equipment; accurately collect 'as applied' maps to ensure the trial went on as planned; easily collect satellite imagery over the site; collect yield data to get intensive measurements of crop performance; and analyse using mapping software.. Satellite imagery of crop biomass throughout a paddock can indicate areas of difference in terms of green matter changes... Imagery and yield - Satellite imagery of crop biomass should be used to determine results of the trial compared to the rest of the paddock...

Paddock-scale trials will demonstrate to growers the suitability and effectiveness of a number of HWSC measures, using commercial equipment to highlight the potential of these management practices to complement large scale trials... "Firstly, we want to focus on how we can change crop maturity and crop physiology to match the requirements to be able to use harvest weed seed techniques," Mr Vague said... "Then, we can go into the paddock, use the big machinery, talk to the famers and actually refine how those techniques are going to be worked into their system, and how beneficial to profit and economics they're going to be at the end of the year."..
