In this episode of the MSF Farm Talk podcast, host Tanja Morgan discusses the potential of long coleoptile varieties with Terese McBeath from CSIRO and Andrew Ware, Research Agronomist with EPAG Research.

The conversation covers recent research findings from trials in the Mallee and Eyre Peninsula regions, focusing on soil types, seeding strategies, and optimising conditions for long coleoptile varieties.

Tune in to learn how this technology could enhance your farming system, improve emergence outcomes, and stay ahead with the latest agricultural innovations.
