Fact sheet follows 3 year stubble management project

Excess crop residue can cause serious problems for new season crop establishment and many farmers resort to burning stubble to overcome the issue but in recent years a number of growers have purchased specific equipment to manage crop residues.

SEPWA worked with several local growers to assess the mechanical functionality and overall effect on trash flow come autumn seeding and assess the strengths and weaknesses of each machine. Machinery options include Twister, Trash Cutter, Swifter-disc, Speed Tiller, Joker, and various makes of slashers and some of this equipment will be put to the test.
