Oat Harvest Stawell 21 a

Harvest Time

Just like that, it’s time for harvest again! The acidity trials for the Smart Farmer Project, funded by National Landcare, have begun being harvested, with the first site already completed.

The Oat trial near Stawell was completed last fortnight, with some good results expected to come through during the data analysis phases. The Faba Beans at Mt Mercer were completed last week.

With the mild Winter and Spring that we have experienced in SW Victoria, some trial sites will be harvested later than usual, with the Wheat crops at Westmere, Skipton, Rokewood and Mt Mercer expected to be completed through January and early February.

Trial results will be available in future Results Books and project summaries in 2022.
