To support growers in their efforts to reduce harvest losses and improve operations at harvest time, BCG with funding from GRDC, are holding a Harvester Forum at Kooloonong on Tuesday the 12th of October.
The face-to-face workshops, which will run from 9am – 1pm with lunch provided, will provide growers and advisors hands on training in harvester set-up to minimise losses and get more grain in the bin.
The practical and interactive forums provided an opportunity for grower discussion on how harvest losses can be accurately measured and how to identify where losses are occurring. The forums also havea key focus on options for harvest weed seed control and how to get the best benefit for hard to control weeds whilst maintaining efficiency of operations, as well as minimising risks of harvester fires.
The project is being led by Primary Sales, with project management support from BCG, and will be delivered nationally with forums and workshops held across the southern, northern and western grain growing regions.
Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) has funded this national project ‘Optimising harvest losses, efficiency and weed seed control; and capacity building for future delivery’ otherwise known as the Harvester Set-Up Project.
