Get on track for planting

Author: Sarah Jeffrey | Date: 17 Dec 2014

Grain growers in New South Wales and Queensland can ‘get on track’ with the latest industry news during the summer crop plant.

The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) northern region 2014 Driving Agronomy audio compact disc (CD) was included in the November-December edition of the GRDC magazine Ground Cover, which was recently mailed to growers.

The CD begins with a regional research update from GRDC Northern Region Panel chair James Clark and features interviews by Driving Agronomy presenter Chris Brown with some of the nation’s leading researchers and cropping experts.

Topics covered include nitrogen application, early sowing, herbicide resistance, managing abiotic stresses, canopy management, perennial wheat, breakthroughs in nematode and yellow spot research, and barley disease resistance.

Driving Agronomy is also available as a podcast via the iTunes store and new editions are released weekly discussing the GRDC’s research, development and extension investments.
