Weeds on Eve of Destructor

Two decades of research and development into destroying weed seed has taken a giant step forward with the release of a harvester integrated version of the Harrington seed destructor.

An licence to develop and commercialise an on-harvester version of the machine has been awarded to South Australian company, de Bruin Engineering.

Available since 2012 in a trailed format, the Integrated Harrington Seed Destructor is the result of research and development by the University of SA with Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) funding.

Design and testing of the concept also involved collaboration with the concept originator, WA farmer, Ray Harrington, and Australian Herbicide Resistance Institute (AHRI) researchers.
