GRDC Grains Research Update, online – Farming Systems – NNSW & Qld

Date: 01 Mar 2022
Region: North


The program from the February/March 2022 GRDC Grains Research Updates has moved online. While we and many participants lament not being able to run these events face to face, this is a fantastic opportunity for you to cherry pick  topics of interest to you not only from your area, but from the broader northern region.

Topics for this webinar:

  • Farming system nutrient legacies – impacts on N inputs, cycling and recovery of applied fertilisers (6 years of experiments). (Lindsay Bell, CSIRO)
  • Comparing grain and cotton east of the Newell Highway. Impacts on the cropping systems and the advantages of growing summer crops to improve $/mm and as a disease break from winter cereal dominated systems. (Jon Baird, NSW DPI & Geoff Manchee, Grower, Moree)
  • How resilient is your farming system strategy for the long haul?  Long term simulations of risk and sustainability of various farming systems experiments using APSIM. (Jeremy Whish, CSIRO)
