House and Paddock Guides to reduce chemical exposure for families
A house and paddock guide has been released by SEPWA as part of its Chemicals project currently underway in the Esperance Port Zone. The house guide has been produced to remind and educate SEPWA members of ways to reduce their family’s exposure to farm chemicals.
It covers the laundering process and basic first aid procedures for farm chemical poisoning. The paddock guide offers safe handling information prior to, during and post spraying on farms. You can contact SEPWA to get a guide for your home.

MyCrop is an interactive tool developed by DAFWA that brings crop diagnostics to the paddock. It is a one stop shop to help you: estimate whether you are reaching your wheat yield potential as determined by rainfall; iidentify your soil type and provide information about key soil issues; diagnose problems in your wheat crop and provide possible remedies.
Flower Power is a new DAFWA online tool that enables grain growers to improve their profits by better managing frost and heat stress risks for their crops. The impact of frost and heat stress at flowering can prove costly and is an area many grain growers have traditionally had little control over.
Flower Power enables growers to compare flowering date predictions relative to long-term average frost and high temperature events, and assess the likelihood of optimum conditions during grain development.
