BDS has been developed in Australia over a period of six years, and is currently in use on six Australian broadacre farms. One BDS kit was installed on a combine in Washington State, USA in June 2008 and was used successfully on the 2008 harvest.

Institutional studies of performance in Australia showed the users were achieving:

  • Retention of 98% of weed seeds in the bales
  • 30% more stubble baled than when seperately baled from windrows

Note: These figures relate to monitored performance on specific farms and may not be replicated in different conditions.
