Managing fallows in stubble retained systems

Wayne Jarvis - fallow management

The Jarvis’s have been farming with a no-till system (though the system varies and tillage is still used when necessary) for seven years. They’ve noticed an increase in yields on no-till country where sheep have been removed from the system as well as an improvement in soil health.

Ian Manwaring - fallow management

The Manwarings farm 22,000 ha North West of Condobolin. They run a mixed farming operation and on occasion take in stock on agistment as a sideline. They classify themselves as conventional croppers, using whatever tools in the shed they need to fit any given season.
