Registrations are now open for Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) grains research and farm business events to be held throughout South Australia in early 2019.

GRDC Grains Research Updates and Farm Business Updates – designed to inform grain growers’ decision-making leading into next year’s cropping season, and beyond – have been scheduled for February and March.

GRDC Grower Relations Manager – South, Courtney Ramsey, says information, insights and advice to be presented at the Updates have the potential to underpin improved agronomic practices and farm business operations for increased profitability.

“The Grains Research Updates will each feature a line-up of expert speakers who will deliver the latest findings from GRDC research investments which have relevance to and implications for the State’s growers,” Ms Ramsey says.

“Further opportunities to generate profit growth within South Australia’s grain growing enterprises will be explored at the Farm Business Updates where the economic implications of practice change by growers and adoption of new technologies will be investigated.”

GRDC Grains Research Updates for 2019 will kick off on February 12-13 when the State’s premier grains research, development and extension event is held in Adelaide.

The Adelaide Update plays an important role in enabling researchers to transfer their knowledge from GRDC investments to advisers and growers, and for showcasing the latest developments in technology.

A regional GRDC Grains Research Update will be at Maitland on February 14, while Farm Business Updates will be at Port Lincoln on March 26 and Adelaide on March 27.
