Like many of our readers, GRDC Northern Region team members are just back from Grains Research Updates throughout Queensland and New South Wales. It was great to catch up with so many growers, agronomists and researchers at the events and even better to hear many regions had received rain. Let’s hope there is more on the horizon and everyone gets a winter crop in this season.
If you didn’t make it to an Update, you’ll find a lot of the valuable presentations from these events on our website
. And if you did attend one of the Updates, you may find yourself or a colleague in social photo galleries from Wagga Wagga
Grains Research Updates.
The Updates are a well-known and successful GRDC initiative, and another key strength of the GRDC is its regional panel system. Read on in this newsletter for information about applications that have now opened for positions on the GRDC’s three regional panels.
The GRDC has also recently published a selection of relevant and timely resources, including the Ten Tips For Early Sown Wheat
, and the Ten Tips for Early Sown Canola
which provide growers and agronomists with important guidelines for improved productivity and profitability.
These are amongst the many up-to-date resources the GRDC has to help growers with pre-season planning that could minimise the impact of frost on yield and farm profits. We know frosts are difficult to predict, understand and manage so check out these additional frost resources
to help guide your decision making.
In the meantime, as we all look to the skies in the hope of good follow-up rain, you can learn more about interpreting weather forecasts in this Paddock Practices
