GRDC Code: SPA2201-001SAX
NGN Precision fertiliser decisions in a tight economic climate
This project is a natural extension to the previous Hands-on Precision Ag Training workshops. It will assist growers to better manage input prices, maximise on-farm productivity/environmental efficiencies and build economic resilience within their farming systems in high input-cost seasons.
It will take the form of face-to-face workshops, a virtual event, take home reference materials such as an updated version of the highly successful joint GRDC/SPAA 2012 publication, PA in Practice II.
