OUR SEASON

Our typical cropping season begins in January with gypsum and lime spreading, tree line ripping, seed cleaning and spraying of summer weeds. This work usually leads through to March when seeding/planting preparations begin. Pre seeding maintenance of machinery and fertiliser cartage work leads into the beginning of our planting program in mid April of long season wheat and canola, then in May the barley and spring wheat program finishing in June with our field pea planting.

Post seeding we complete rock rolling and picking to remove rocks dug up at seeding and ensure our paddocks are easier to harvest.

In crop spraying consists of different herbicide, insecticide, fungicide and liquid fertiliser or trace elements applications as the season requires and typically begins in June and extends into September.

Pre harvest preparations begin in September with machinery maintenance, firebreak works and farm roadworks completed.

Harvest typically begins in October through to December with the usual order being field pea, canola, barley, wheat. Most grain is delivered into the CBH system for export to other countries, with some retained on farm for next seasons planting requirements or domestic sale.
