This farmers, is a fantastic episode to wrap your ears around for the hours in the tractor. Whether you're still going in the tractor planting this years crop or you've luckily finished and enjoying some early rain especially along the East coast of Australia. Dr. Paul Melloy is a research fellow out of University of Queensland and has had his hand on the pulse for plant disease and how farmers can identify and prevent yield loss in their own crop.  Paul goes through the different apps available that are discussed on the episode so take a look and download if they're for you: Blackleg canola manager (BlackLegCM) BlacklegCM- Blackleg Management App | Agriculture and Food Sclerotinia canola manager (SclerotiniaCM) SclerotiniaCM - Sclerotinia Management App | Agriculture and Food Yellow spot wheat manager (YellowSpotWM) YellowSpotWM - Yellow leaf spot management | Agriculture and Food Stipe rust wheat manager (StripeRustWM) StripeRustWM | Agriculture and Food Powdery mildew mungbean manager (PowderyMildewMBM) PowderyMildew MBM - Powdery Mildew management app for mungbean | Agriculture and Foo The team is also working on delivering new crop disease models, such as: spatial risk of black spot in field pea; net-blotch in barley, Ascochyta blight in chickpeas and the soon to be released upper canopy infection tool in canola (UCI BlacklegCM). The Grains Research and Development corporation (GRDC) are funding this work and anticipate if these apps are more widely adopted grain crop yield losses of at least 10%, due to disease, could be saved. The “Disease epidemiology, modelling and delivery of management decision support tools” project I am working on is led by Jean Galloway and includes collaborating institutions and experts from across the country. All our models are built on up to 30 years of research trial data from all major growing regions. You can catch Paul on Twitter at @PaulMelloy as this is where we found him for the podcast.

In partnership with Agworld we bring you this episode.

From his wheat to potatoes paddocks we dive into what drives his operation. In his area potatoes are king! With the recent 50mm it's a bit short of their usual rainfall of 1250mm each year. Michael had thought that moving to Agworld would be a good decision for his farm to reduce the amount of paper work when looking at compliance for high valued crops and also ensuring he knows what has happened and what activities have been. Types of crops they have on farm: Poppy Pyrethrum Onion Potatoe Simplot Peas (Green Peas) Wheat Buck Wheat Ground Beans Fun fact: Their average paddock would be around 10ha and they hold the record for highest yielding wheat crop in Australia at 13.1 tonne/ha.

Managing Macadamia Farms through Digital Records | Theunis Smit
Managing Macadamia Farms through Digital Records | Theunis Smit
This is our 100th episode of Farms Advice Podcast. We're proud to partner with Agworld to bring you the conversations of operations, farmer owners and PHD scholars to give you insights into how they're operating Beyond Record Keeping. Theunis Smit is working with the Macadamia Farm Management crew of 300+ workers at any one time. With this workforce comes a lot of responsibility on the individual but also on the managers. Theunis was biting at the bit when he had the opportunity to bring on a piece of agtech that would go on to help with their operating of Macadamia farms across the East Coast of Australia. As they're dealing with investors, they want to know where there money is going so inventory is a big one for them. Also looking at how they can improve their orchards and breakdown any inconsistency. What I liked about this story specifically was the way he dealt with the employees adopting the agtech. He was able to get around the barrier by providing the tools each tractor needed to get the job done. He went and bought every one an iPad in order to utilise the products straight away and that they wouldn't see an adoption lag and then early adopters. This has brought the company together and allowed for greater transparency on and off-farm.

The Importance Of Networking Within Agribusiness | James Brouff | Farms Advice Podcast
The Importance Of Networking Within Agribusiness | James Brouff | Farms Advice Podcast
Farms Advice talks with James Brouff about his personal story of how he got to where he is today within banking and finance in the agribusiness sector. James has continued his studies through his working life to continually improve his position and add to the knowledge bank. He has been able to use his networks to grow professionally and to mold his way of leadership as part of a team at the Regional Investment Corporation. It was excellent speaking to another farmer gone corporate to see him making waves within his own niche.  It isn't easy to get to where he is today and is important to point out how he got there to others who may be thinking of jumping into the deep end of the banking and finance world of Australian agribusiness. James is a modest man and holds himself within his role as a Senior Credit Manager. The importance of farmers to be able to relate to someone like James goes a long way when speaking about finance. If you are off the farm or working within agribusiness it is important that you are a part of the finance and the "books" so that you are able to stay on top of it.  Please share this podcast to help us reach the 135,000+ farming businesses across Australia.
