The aim of this project is to test the effectiveness of land smoothing using the program Ezigrade

Drainage is a key issue that needs to be addressed on my farm to improve productivity. We have used Ezigrade in the past to level blocks but have not completed any trial comparisons. Mossman Ag Services offer the hire of a GPS Scoop and provide plans to grade blocks on request from growers. We are continually assessing blocks and doing maintenance on drains and headlands. We would like to see evidence to suggest that these plans do work to improve the drainage of block and subsequently the productivity of the farm.
