Stubble results to be revealed at field day

By Country News

Riverine Plains will host a paddock walk at Burramine this week, during which the key outcomes from the five-year GRDC project ‘Maintaining profitable farming systems with retained stubble in the Riverine Plains region’ will be discussed.

Key topics will include the effect of stubble-management systems on crop growth and development, row spacing, nitrogen application, yellow-leaf spot and plant-growth regulators.

The final results, as well as the implications of the project findings, will be presented by Riverine Plains research officer Cassandra Schefe and Michael Straight from FAR Australia.

The session will be followed by an early-season tour of the trials being conducted at the Riverine Research Centre, a collaboration between Riverine Plains and FAR Australia, providing an independent focal point for regional and national research projects in the Victorian and NSW border region.

The paddock walk will take place at 10am on Thursday, June 21, at the Riverine Research Centre, Forges Rd, Burramine (near Yarrawonga).
