Description

GRDC Grains Research Updates, online bring you the latest grains research straight to your screen.

Log in for a selection of the latest farm-ready research and regionally relevant topics.

Webinar starts at 9am (AEST) and are free of charge.

Theme: Nitrogen and its impact on the greenhouse gas footprint of grain production in the northern grains region of Australia.

Topics

  • What processes affect the greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint of N in northern farming systems and how well does modelling predict this? (Peter Grace, Queensland University of Technology)
  • Nitrogen loss pathways – how much do we lose and in what form under different situations (Graeme Schwenke, NSW DPI)
  • N management strategies and their impact on GHG balance (Lindsay Bell, CSIRO)
  • Discussion on implementing lower emissions strategies and implications for how we budget for and supply N in different farming systems:
    • What we don't know – where is R & D needed?
    • What can growers and agronomists do now?
    • What are the likely impacts on system productivity from action?
    • What are we likely to be required to do in the future?
