Registrations are now open for Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) grains research events to be held in South Australia in early 2021.

GRDC Grains Research Updates – designed to inform grain growers’ decision making leading into the next cropping season, and beyond – have been scheduled for February.

Information, insights and advice to be presented at the Updates have the potential to underpin improved agronomic practices for increased profitability, according to GRDC Grower Relations Manager – South, Tom Blake.

“Each of the GRDC Grains Research Updates will feature hand-picked expert speakers who will deliver the latest findings from GRDC research investments of importance to the State’s growers,” Mr Blake says.

The State’s premier grains research, development and extension event will be in Adelaide on February 9 and 10.

Mr Blake says the Adelaide Update plays a pivotal 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 held at Crystal Brook on February 11.

For further information and to register for the Updates, visit the GRDC event list or phone ORM on 03 5441 6176 or email admin@orm.com.au
