Drilling Lucerne at Lake Heron Station



As the summer season progresses, it is vital to get winter crops planted while there is still plenty of moisture in the ground. Most of the crops are planted by direct drilling which is a great way to get the seed and fertilizer into the ground without turning over soil. This ensures that there is a minimum of moisture loss and gets seeds off to a good start. This image shows a roller drill at work – planting a new paddock of lucerne seed.
