The first in what will become a series of videos documenting the GRDC funded Stubble Initiative being conducted by FarmLink has been launched on the FarmLink YouTube Channel.
The first set of videos in the Seasons in Stubble Series is featured below and can be viewed by following the relevant links. This is just another way FarmLink is keeping members informed about the groundbreaking research and projects being conducted throughout the FarmLink region. Further additions to the series will be created and uploaded as the Stubble Initiative research progresses.

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.
