Brad Jones, of Tammin, is part of a GRDC Kwinana East Regional Cropping Solutions Network project investigating key drivers of top-performing farm businesses in WA's eastern wheatbelt... "Using liquid products, we can sow up to 600ha of crop per day, which is about 100ha/day faster than we could achieve with granular fertiliser and has cut our total seeding time to about 15 days if the weather is good," he says... Brad says a range of broad-scale herbicides are used in the fallow to remove herbicide-resistant weeds to make way for dry sowing when the paddock returns to production, typically in a rotation of fallow/cereal/cereal/canola and hay/legumes...
