Cropping

Register now for updates

Registrations are now open for Grains Research and Development Corporation grains research and farm business events to be held throughout Victoria in early 2019.

GRDC Grains Research Updates and Farm Business Updates — designed to inform grain growers’ decision-making leading into next year’s cropping season, and beyond — have been scheduled for February and March.

GRDC’s southern area grower relations manager Courtney Ramsey said information, insights and advice to be presented at the updates had the potential to underpin improved agronomic practices and farm business operations for increased profitability.

‘‘The GRDC Grains Research Updates will each feature a line-up of expert speakers who will deliver the latest findings from GRDC research investments which have relevance to and implications for the state’s growers,’’ Ms Ramsey said.

Grains Research Updates will kick-off on February 26 and 27 when the state’s premier grains research, development and extension event was held in Bendigo.

The Bendigo update plays an important role in enabling researchers to transfer their knowledge from GRDC investments to advisers and growers, and for showcasing the latest developments in technology.
