Seed Terminator, Kelly Ingram

[July 2023]

1. Killing weeds as seeds, targeting them at their most vulnerable stage
2. Potential regulatory changes: Alternative weed seed control methods are required if
chemicals are phased out.
3. Generational change: New farmers eager to explore innovative weed control approaches.
4. Herbicide resistance: Necessitates exploration of alternative weed management techniques.
5. Burning: Environmentally unacceptable for weed control.
6. Modern seeders: Handle heavy trash, reducing the need for burning and promoting
sustainable weed management.
7. Full residue retention to keep nutrients in the soil
8. Smaller particles: Faster breakdown for nutrient recycling in soil.
9. Improving agricultural land: Ensuring productivity for future generations.
10. Cost savings: Reduced spraying expenses.
11. Fewer passes: Minimised soil compaction.
12. Terminate losses: Eliminate volunteers for improved application during spraying.
13. Long-term benefits: Reduced farmer exposure to chemicals, promoting safer practices.
14. Maximising existing land: Optimizing productivity with rising land costs.
15. Time savings: Integrated harvesting and weed control for labour efficiency.
16. Reduced chemical application: Minimised residues in the food chain.
17. Greater yields: In-crop spraying affects grain development, reducing yield.
18. Operator awareness: Aware of settings during harvesting to minimise grain loss.
19. Preventing weed competition: Protecting nutrients and moisture for crops.
20. Pest management: Less grain on the ground reduces pest infestations.
21. Improved emergence: Reduced trash promotes better crop establishment.
22. It doesn’t make sense to spend time and money killing weeds all year, only to reward the survivors at harvest and spread them out to spray next year.
