Next year I intend to establish a research program investigating ridge
tillage for small grain production in southern Australia's cropping zone.
Herbicide resistant weeds are now becoming a the major constraint to
production in reduced till systems, and weeds in general remain the main
impediment to more widespread organic production.
Unfortunately, all the information I have been able to source regarding
ridge till relates to the corn/soybean rotations, which does not
necessarily translate to our cereal/oilseed/grain legume systems. If
anyone can help with scientific and/or general information on small grain
production on ridges, or sources of that I can pursue, it would be much
