Grains Research and Development hosts Narrabri Field Day

Growers from around the North West are invited to attend GRDC’s Narrabri Field Day tomorrow.

Farmers are invited to come along and see the latest grain crop research to assist growers and advisors with increasing productivity in University of Sydney’s Plant Breeding Institute’s highly variable climate.

• Over 150 specific demonstrations 

• Wild and unique crop germplasm

• Novel weed management technology 

• Soil carbon research and soil pits

• Emerging crops for the Northwest region 

• New grazing and livestock research

• Digital agriculture and drone demonstrations 

Personnel from The University of Sydney, Australian Grain Technologies, GRDC, CSIRO, NSW DPI, Dow Seeds, Longreach Plant Breeders and Austgrains will present on the day.
