On Friday the 12th of June 2015, West Midlands Group hosted a Seeding Equipment Ride and Drive at Badgingarra Research station. The Ride and Drive day was a free event that gave the opportunity for growers to sit in the driver’s seat and test the latest seeding machinery from McIntosh and Son and AFGRI Equipment. The benefit of the day is to sow 40 ha of the Badgingarra’s community wheat crop at the BRS.
“Nearly all machinery field days only allow the farmer to look at the latest machinery however this event actually allows you to test drive the equipment in local conditions”
