    New WEEDit Quadro and US research group's Australian farm tour

    New WEEDit Quadro and US research group's Australian farm tour

    This is our last podcast for 2019! It's been such a great year, covering a broad range of topics related to integrated weed management.

    In this episode, hosts, Jessica Strauss and Peter Newman, give an overview of what were the most popular podcasts and articles WeedSmart produced in 2019.

    In following up from our last podcast where we got an overview of the new WeedSeeker, in this podcast we catch up with Dalby Rural Supplies Precision Ag Specialist Jeremy Jones about the new WEEDit Quadro.

    We also catch up with Steven Mirsky. He's a Research Ecologist with the US Department of Agriculture and is a member of the US group, GROW (Getting Rid of Weeds). The group recently did a national farm tour in Australia, learning about our farming systems and how we control weeds.

    WeedSeeker 2 overview and weed control findings from CSIRO

    WeedSeeker 2 overview and weed control findings from CSIRO

    On the podcast this week, we find out about the new bells and whistles of the WeedSeeker 2 and we also get an insight into the weed control findings of a CSIRO-led farming systems project in the Northern region.

    McIntosh Distributions Sales Representative Scott Jameson provides a great overview of the just-released WeedSeeker 2. It’s a complete upgrade from the original WeedSeeker, with the only thing remaining from the old system being the way the sensors detect weeds.

    CSIRO's Lindsay Bell also gives us a great overview of a 5-year farming systems project he has been leading in the Northern Region. The project had DAF, GRDC and CSIRO investment.

    We also mentioned on the podcast to register for our upcoming webinar with Bhagirath Chauhan and Paul McIntosh on weed biology insights to improve management of Feathertop Rhodes grass and Barnyard grass.

    Stripper front and chaff deck system explainer and grain storage tips

    Stripper front and chaff deck system explainer and grain storage tips

    On the podcast today, you're joined by co-hosts Jessica Strauss and Peter Newman to find out some practical tips on grain storage and delve into the details of a stripper front and chaff deck system.

    Grower Jamie Phillis from Ungarra, in the Lower Eyre Peninsula, South Australia joins us on the podcast to tell us about his farming system and approach to harvest. He’s running a Shelbourne stripper front for cereals and a draper front for other crops and he's using a chaff deck in combination with both of these fronts.

    We also catch up with grain storage specialist, Phillip Burrell to get some practical tips on getting grain storage right. You can follow up on some of Phillip's tips by checking out the stored grain website here: https://storedgrain.com.au/
