Chaff dump management and 'strip and disc' systems
Summary: Did you know you can bale your chaff dumps? South Australian farmer Andrew Ridgway, who is based in Pine Hill, has baled his chaff dumps this year to provide additional feed for stock in his area. Andrew tweeted about this novel way of managing chaff dumps, so we followed up with him to find out more about the process. We also caught up with WA farmer Rod Messina about how he's managing his dumps this year. Rod also talks to us about his recent trip over east where he was introduced to strip and disc farming systems. He talks about how some elements of the system could potentially be applied in WA farming systems.
