The grower group 'technical audit' of 61 farmers in Western Australia's northern grainbelt was funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and tracks the adoption of practices relating to management of variation in soil types and yield potential, soil health and innovative enterprise... "In the case of auto-steer - used by 92 per cent of growers - this adoption has been rapid; on average the farmers had only just used this technology for the first time in 2006," she said... "Some growers adopted these practices in the past but are now scaling down or no longer using them due to issues such as reduced crop yields and poorer crop establishment in the case of zero-till," Ms Hollamby said...
