Easy handling & effective root disease management a winning combination for WA farmers

Monday, February 20, 2017

Geoff Stade and his brother David farm 3,600 hectares on a mixed cropping and grazing property at Katanning. They crop wheat, barley, oats, canola and lupins on 60 percent of the farm and raise Dorper lambs on their clover pastures.

Geoff needed to manage the rhizoctonia patches in their cereal crops and was experiencing dust and residue issues on their machinery from seed treatment products. Based on advice from his local agronomist and Hannaford franchisee Derek Batchelor, Geoff used Rancona® Dimension seed treatment for the first time.
