" Agribusiness Trial Extension Network.. The aim of the project is to extend an existing program designed to test if low initial inputs will minimise the financial risk of growing crops in dry seasons but still allow for incrop inputs to be applied to achieve optimal yields... As many of the current rules of input use, such as when to apply P and how much seed to use, have developed in the last 50 years there is a need to reassess their appropriateness in today's.....

Image of the Harrington Seed Destructor.. De Bruin Engineering's Harrington Seed Destructor (HSD), designed and manufactured in Australia, has been recognised on the world stage, winning the 2015 Edison Award in the US in the 'Smart Agriculture' category... Key findings include: 69 per cent of surveyed growers use a combination of methods to pick the right time to sell, while 31 per cent take the price on offer; women are more willing to try new approaches (42 per cent of women versus 38 per cent of men) and they are also more likely to adjust practices in response to the market (64 per cent versus 60 per cent); and 69 per cent of growers say maximising production and quality is the most important profitability driver; 31 per cent say managing costs is most important...
