MEETING THE REQUIREMENTS
  • Before and after planting, clean equipment paying particular attention to silos, bins, augers and other equipment used for pickled grain.
    This will help to prevent harvested grain from being contaminated.
  • If planting a genetically modified (GM) crop, meet the specific requirements defined for that technology, such as in the licence or agreement.

OTHER PRACTICES TO CONSIDER IN YOUR GRAIN FARMING ENTERPRISE

  • Ensuring the integrity of seed used for planting by using seed that is:
    • Labelled and traceable.
    • Tested to assure variety is what you expect.
    • Treated prior to sowing to prevent disease where needed.
    • Commercially sourced when required (particularly for canola).
  • Matching crop choice to paddocks based on weeds, pests, diseases, nutritional constraints, rotational history and resistance management.
  • Recording the seed variety sown, source of seed, seed treatments and sowing contractors (if used) for each paddock.
  • Keeping records of all cleaning operations if seed treatment has been used.
