Since 2004, Paul Alexander of Primewest Ltd has been contract farming 1000 acres using the increasingly popular no-till approach as a replacement for conventional tillage systems. With reduced man-hours and fuel usage, as well as improved trafficability, Paul has seen soil health improve, allowing for a reduction in fertiliser costs. Yields are comparable to neighbouring farmers who continue to use conventional systems, and favourable results have been achieved with a variety of different soil types. In this case study, Paul discusses this increasingly popular approach.
