Paddock Proven technology for weed seed management
Seed Terminator is a completely fresh look at mechanical devitalisation of weed seeds at harvest. It provides a simple one pass solution to harvest weed seed control. Weed and volunteer seeds present in the chaff material leaving the cleaning shoe are intercepted and pulverised. The processed material is spread back onto the paddock to return nutrients and soil protective mulch.

How does it work?
South Australian Grains Industry Trust funded research conducted by Trengove Consulting in 2017 found ryegrass weed seed kill was 93% at 2250 rpm and increased to 98% or greater at normal operating speeds (2500–3000 rpm). Results also showed more than 99% control of several other species including wild radish, brome grass, wild oat, bifora, bedstraw and tares and increasing chaff flow rate (harvest rate) did not reduce control of these species.
