Dry sowing dangers “emerge” in stubble

Southern Farming Systems ran a Disc versus Tine Seeder trial.

What did the research involve?

  • replicated trial was sown on the 12th of April this year into dry conditions at Streatham in South-West Victoria.
  • disc seeder sowed canola into 30cm high stubble from a 2015 wheat crop
    • this year a machine with 25cm row spaces was used, which had some challenges as the 2015 crop was sown using 30cm row spaces.
  • tine seeder was sown using 30cm row spaces in both years with the 2016 canola direct drilled, inter-row, into 15cm high stubble.

What were the key results?
