Elmore grains update to be held online

By Rodney Woods

The latest grains research insights relevant to farming systems in the Elmore region and neighbouring areas will be discussed at a Grains Research and Development Corporation Grains Research Update on August 13.

GRDC southern grower relations manager Tom Blake said the update, to be live-streamed, will enable growers to tap into GRDC farm-ready research relevant to their farming systems.

“This update will provide growers with a valuable opportunity to discuss with the experts a range of topics of regional interest, such as managing nitrogen for high crop yields, achieving healthy nodulation in pulses, faba bean agronomy tips and managing red leather leaf disease and weather damage in oats,” Mr Blake said.

“Despite the implications of COVID-19, the GRDC remains committed to ensuring that growers don't miss out on the latest research findings, advice and recommendations.

“Even though we can't host the in-person regional event that was originally planned, this online update will allow participants to hear from and interact with the experts on a range of hand-picked topics.”

The Elmore grains update will be held on Thursday, August 13, from 9.30 am to 11 am.
