Planting fababeans continues through dry and dusty conditions. No rain recorded during April means we have needed to place the seed at 10-12cms deep on the moisture. Planting beans often involves several operations. The previous post covered a knockdown spray by plane. The picture below shows the next three steps – planting on the far right, chain harrowing (middle/dusty) fills all the furrows, breaks up last seasons canola stubble and leaves a flat surface, and finally a residual spray for incrop weed control(left).
