Harvest & Post Harvest
Stubble Management Project

For the past two years FarmLink Research and the GRDC have partnered to conduct a paddock scale experiment comparing plant growth, yield and profitability of different harvest and post harvest stubble management techniques.
The project is part of the GRDC Stubble Initiative and was established in December 2013 on the property of Ben and Lou Beck at Downside.
