Canola agronomy workshops

Author: | Date: 23 Mar 2011

CANOLA AGRONOMY WORKSHOPS: To prepare growers and advisers for an anticipated resurgence of canola in the Wimmera and Mallee regions of Victoria, two agronomy workshops will be held at Warracknabeal in April. The workshops on Thursday, April 7, at the Warracknabeal Community Centre, will focus on agronomy associated with Roundup Ready® canola. Organised by BCG with funding support from the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), the two back-to-back workshops will feature several keynote speakers who from 8am will deliver information to growers new to Roundup Ready® canola, and in the second workshop starting at 2.30pm they will present to more experienced growers and agronomic advisers. Cost of registration is free for BCG members and $20 for non-BCG members. To register, contact Ciara Cullen at the BCG office on (03) 5492 2787 or email info@bcg.org.au. For workshop enquiries, contact Felicity Pritchard of Pritchard Agricultural Consulting and Extension on 0427 600 228 or (03) 5382 4396 or email oilseed@bigpond.net.au.
