The cost of a bad herbicide mix and innovative farmer Tim Rethus talks about his farming system
Summary: Herbicide mixes are not all one of the same. The efficacy of a mix can be affected significantly by the adjuvant its mixed with. On this podcast we chat with Research Agronomist with Jubilee Consulting, Andrew Somervaille. He explains herbicide mixes in more detail, with a particular emphasis on glyphosate. South Australian Independent Consultant, Craig Davis also talks about herbicide mixes and shares what advice he gives his clients in this regard. We also talk to Tim Rethus.

In this interview, we get a snapshot of the farming system Tim and his family has adopted on their farm, as well as some guidance on how to make innovate decisions for your farming enterprise.
