Agriculture Victoria is hosting four workshops across northern Victoria to update farmers on the current season.

Damian Jones, from the Irrigated Cropping Council; Colin Peace, from Jumbuk Ag; Graeme Anderson, from Agriculture Victoria; and Andrew Shields, from Goulburn-Murray Water, will speak at each event.
