Nutrition management forum planned for SQ

Author: Sarah Jeffrey

Grain growers keen to know more about nutrition management are invited to take part in a forum in Kingaroy on Wednesday, 16 July 2014.

The forum is an initiative of the Inland Burnett Grower Solutions project and the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) with support from Incitec Pivot Fertilisers.

Guest speakers include Ian Crosthwaite, BGA AgriServices; Chris Dowling, Back Paddock Company; Mike Bell, Queensland Alliance for Agricultural and Food Innovation (Kingaroy) and Nikki Seymour, Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (Toowoomba).

Information sessions will have a local focus and provide best practice advice on nutrient removals, soil testing and fertiliser placement as well as research findings from local trials.

At the conclusion of the forum, growers will be given an opportunity to work in groups to consider a nutrient management strategy for a ‘typical’ crop sequence based on the presentations made by the speakers throughout the day.

The forum starts at 9am on 16 July and is free of charge. For more information and to RSVP contact Kaara Klepper on 0477 315 959 or kaara.klepper@daff.qld.gov.au or Ian Crosthwaite on 0409 622 319 or icrosthwaite@bgaagri.com.au.
