A GRDC investment could see growers in the southern region growing crops like wheat and canola and even peas in the same paddock at the same time.

Inter-row cropping is not new, but scientifically evaluating it on a broadacre scale is new. On Part 1 we heard Agriculture Victoria crop scientist, Garry O’Leary explain the aims of the multi-site trials.

On Part 2, senior research agronomist, Penny Riffkin takes us into the paddock at Hamilton in Victoria to explain some of the challenges and opportunities that are already revealing themselves.
