Poppy crop in Tasmania
Drilling a poppy crop, Perth, Tasmania October 1999.

The machine in the distance is a trailing Accord airseeder with DX disc coulters & presswheels (you can see the finish from these here).

The same paddock. Shot taken on the headland, the next day (after a shower of rain).
Re: Poppy crop in Tasmania
The same crop, just prior to herbicide application.

You can see some rather large wild radish plants in the crop. The density is a little patchy due to early damage by slugs (for which we applied pellets, once the damage was discovered).

The crop finished off well & yielded above average, which pleased the farmer :-)
