Author: Melissa Williams

Dates and locations have been announced for the 2015 Western Australian Regional Crop Updates, which can help equip grain growers with the latest research results applicable to their area.

Supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia (DAFWA), 12 updates will be held throughout the WA grainbelt in March.

Growers in the northern grainbelt are encouraged to diarise the following dates:

  • Liebe Group – March 4 – Dalwallinu Recreation Centre
  • West Midlands Group – March 10 – Badgingarra Recreation Centre
  • North East Farming Futures – March 12 – Mullewa Sports Club

GRDC western regional panel chairman Peter Roberts encouraged growers to attend the events to access relevant and timely information to help them boost farm productivity and profitability.

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

More information about this year’s Regional Crop Updates events is available at www.grdc.com.au/updatedates.
