NZ Radish Harvest
IH Combine (1400 series) harvesting a Radish seed crop in
New Zealand, from a few seasons ago (when a mate of mine was
working in NZ).
Re: NZ Radish Harvest
for what do you use radish seed?
here we use radish to eat.
Re: NZ Radish Harvest
The radish is an Asian type I believe, grown in NZ &
exported to Asia. Depending on the type of radish that you
grow to eat, the seed may well have originated in NZ, I am
not sure.

Here in Tasmania (Australia) we grow Chinese Cabbage,
Chinese Mustard, Pak Choi, Cabbage, Cauliflower & Canola
(Oilseed Rape) for seed, with the seed exported mostly to
Asia. We cant grow the Radish Seed here as we have too much
Wild Radish (a weed) in the ground, which would contaminate
the seed crop.

The seed cropping is high input/ high return / high risk &
is usually done on a smallish scale (blocks of cabbage are
usually 1-2 Hectares). Many crop protection chemicals are
used, to control weeds, disease & insect pests, with some
crops sprayed 15-20 times during a season.

I hope this helps answer your query :-)
Re: NZ Radish Harvest
yes, thanks ;-)

Re: NZ Radish Harvest
No sorry, that is the only one I have of that particular
machine in the radish seed crop.

I shall be posting some more machinery pics this week when I
get the time :-)
