Spraying is a critical – and big cost – part of the annual cropping program and with rain in many areas is the next big challenge. In the June issue of Farming Ahead we have an extended look at spraying, especially at nozzles and the latest technology to get you the best results at the best price. We also take a look at the biological wool harvesting system BioClip. It has struggled as a shearing alternative since its discovery by Australian scientists in the 1950s but a change in ownership has brought about a complex overhaul of its products and processes, resulting in the delivery of new and significant benefits for the wool industry. And University of Adelaide researchers report a succession of years with multiple and varied control options in each rotation phase can be key to successful ryegrass management. That’s just a few of the valuable industry reports in June’s Farming Ahead.
