Broadacre Crop Management

Wheat | Barley | Canola | Beans | Lentils | Peas | Lupins
Vetch | Chickpeas | Cereal Rye | Triticale | Coriander | Brassica Crops

Based on several years experience in the district Alpha Group is well positioned to satisfy the broadacre crop requirements of clients. The broadacre season has a good fit with the lucerne seed season as the cropping season begins just after the lucerne harvest, and canola windrowing and legume crop topping occurs just prior to the main seed closure period.
The Alpha Group team can assist with advice on rotations, variety selection, optimal seeding times, fertiliser, pesticide recommendations, weed and insect monitoring, windrowing timing, spray application techniques and seeding equipment.
