Long hours spent in the header or truck at harvest time provide the perfect opportunity to tune into the latest news in grains research, development and extension.

The 2012 Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) western region Driving Agronomy audio compact disc features interviews by presenter Chris Brown with key staff, researchers and consultants.

GRDC western region chairman Peter Roberts gives an update on regional research while managing director John Harvey discusses the GRDC’s 2012-17 Strategic Plan.

WA research issues discussed in other interviews include non-wetting soils; sub soil pH; spray water quality; soil carbon; soil biology; fungal disease spray; and brown manure.

Growers can also get updated on no-till in Argentina; crop sequencing; fighting fleabane; herbicide tolerance; new genetic material; and farming in Kazakhstan.

The Driving Agronomy CD is included in the November-December edition of the GRDC magazine Ground Cover or contact Ground Cover Direct on free phone 1800 11 00 44 or ground-cover-direct@canprint.com.au.
