Crop Biomass Assessment
Host: Tony Crowley | Date: 25 Sep 2018
At the recent southern NSW, Henty Field Days, GRDC with NSW DPI presented a special grower forum called Tough Season Questions Answered. The idea of the forum was to give grain growers an opportunity to hear timely advise on crop management decisions and have their questions answered.
One of the speakers was Dr Felicity Harris a Cereal Physiologist with NSW DPI who highlighted the need to identify biomass in paddocks so that informed decisions could be made to either take a crop through to harvest, cut for fodder, silage, or to consider grazing options.
In this podcast Dr Felicity Harris encourages growers to measure biomass at both a paddock and farm scale sand to be aware of any underlying damage that might have been caused by frost events.
