There are moderate to high numbers of mice in many areas, and could cause damage at seeding. Mouse activity appears to be very patchy and could be related to paddock history (high yielding, lots of ground cover). Growers should still remain vigilant, and better protection, will lead to less crop damage and better yields.
The MDD 100 M1 Multi-Metering System combines the advantages of a Pneumatic Seeder and a Disc Spreader: Precise metering is performed by a seeding shaft, the seed is spread using a spreading plate – optimal for slug pellets and mouse baiting across large working widths and for spreading various catch crops. (e.g. up to 28m for slug pellets and mouse bait.)
