GRDC Grower Relations Manager – South, Darren Arney, caught up with Kelly Moore of Gorst Rural, Lake Bolac, at the 2018 GRDC Grains Research Update in Bendigo.

Registrations are now open for Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) grains research and farm business events to be held throughout Victoria 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 GRDC 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 Victoria’s grain growing enterprises will be explored at the GRDC Farm Business Updates where the economic implications of practice change by growers and adoption of new technologies will be investigated.”

Grains Research Updates will kick off on February 26-27 when the State’s premier grains research, development and extension event is held in Bendigo.

The Bendigo 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.

Regional Grains Research Updates will be at Dunkeld on February 28, Hopetoun on March 14 and Boort on March 15.

Farm Business Updates will be at Sale on March 6 and Geelong on March 14.
