GRDC grains research updates coming to local growers online

While there won't be any face-to-face events coming up, grain growers in the Moree Plains Shire will still have the opportunity to learn about the latest farm-ready research to enhance their operations through a series of online events being delivered by the Grains Research Development Corporation (GRDC).

The GRDC grains research updates will be coming to growers, agronomists, consultants and industry representatives in the northern region live and online in July and August, as they continue to deliver the latest research despite the continuing social distancing restrictions still in place as a result of COVID-19.

A series of seven weekly online events have been scheduled for growers and advisers in northern NSW and Queensland, running on Tuesdays at 9am.


The first will be held next Tuesday, July 14 and will focus on summer crops in western areas. The following Tuesday the topic will be early sown sorghum, while irrigation (north) will be the topic on July 28, diseases (north) will be on August 4, farming systems (north) will be on August 11, mungbean physiology, rhizobium and nematodes will be the topic for August 18, with the final seminar to be on mungbean agronomy and WUE on August 25.

The updates will run for one to one and a half hours.
