Author: Natalie Lee

Grain growers can get on the front foot for the 2014 cropping season by obtaining the latest technical information at their local Regional Crop Update event in March.

Supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA), 10 updates will be held throughout the Western Australian grainbelt.

Growers in the State’s southern grainbelt are encouraged to diarise the following dates:

  • Facey Group – March 6 – Wickepin Community Centre;
  • Southern Dirt – March 13 – Katanning Recreation Centre;
  • Stirlings to Coast Farmers – March 20 – Kendenup Lodge.

GRDC western regional panel chairman Peter Roberts encouraged growers to get along to their nearest Regional Crop Update event to access new information to help them boost farm productivity and profitability.

“The program committee for the updates has been guided by issues identified by GRDC Regional Cropping Solutions Networks and papers to be presented will focus on local grower priorities,” he said.
