Technology and social licence are changing how we spray fallow and crops. Come to the GRDC Spray Days in March to discuss the latest spray technology innovations and stewardship with industry experts.

GRDC Spray Days assist growers to make more informed decisions on spray equipment investment and how to use technology for optimum benefit.

In the afternoon trade display session, growers can focus in on the technologies they are most interested in, with direct access to leading industry technology providers.
