The Integrated Harrington Seed Destructor –¬†Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative
The United States is not the only country dealing with extreme herbicide resistance problems. In response to similar weed issues, Australian innovators created the integrated Harrington Seed Destructor (iHSD) which “comprises of two hydraulically driven cage mills that are mounted within the rear of the harvester (just below the sieves).” The Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative determined that the mills can destroy 93 to 99% of the weed seeds that enter them. While not currently available in the U.S., the iHSD represents potential to better manage weeds in the future.
