Seeding & Revegetation Work


As we are a privately operated revegetation business, based around a very large indigenous seedbank, covering fourteen Council Districts, Rangelands and Commonwealth Lands.

Operating since 1989, we have helped to develop equipment and techniques of reveg and vegetation  management currently used in on-ground works today. Being private and completely unfunded, many of these techniques are very cost efficient through necessity.   Also, having operated for many years around isolated west South Australia we have evolved many revegetation strategies, techniques and local contacts.

We are very well known in the EP community and often the first point of contact for locals planning revegetation works.

 

EQUIPMENT

Eyre Native Seeds has two direct seeding machines, both are very site specific.

The Roden disc seeder (pictured below) being 4 x 4 pulled direct seeding machine  requires reasonably flat ground.Large infestations of weeds need to be dealt with as these can be problematic, tangling around the tynes which tickle the seed into the prepared cut made by the disc. Preparation with this direct seeding machine can be the key to success.

Tractor pulled ripper seeder– 3pt linkage seeder- (pictured above without the blades) This seeder is purpose built for dryland seeding. With two grader blades it creates a shallow but wide scrape each side of a single ripper tyne, these take out the first years weed competition, because of the shape of the blades and placement of the tyne it channels available rainfall to the centre of the seeding line.
