Scroll to the bottom of the screen to listen to this episode, where we sit down with Dalby cotton grower Dan Hayllor to talk about the work that the family has done to reduce compaction from machinery. One of the big changes that they have made in recent years is converting their cotton picker to a four metre wheel spacing. With all their machinery on 4 metres, it has allowed for a seamless transition between their irrigated country and dryland country. 

The below graphic shows the tramlines for the cotton picker lining up across dryland and irrigated row spacing scenarios. Illustration and podcast by Brad Pfeffer, CottonInfo.
