Coming up: GRDC research updates

Graingrowers across northern New South Wales and Queensland say they want to know more about grain storage, including managing wet grain at harvest and use of aeration and drying; and more long-term aspects like insect management in sealed and unsealed storages and better management of phosphine.

Most 2001 Grower Updates will include a significant session on this subject.

Grower and adviser updates are run by the GRDC in association with Queensland's Farming Systems Institute, NSW Agriculture and the grains divisions of AgForce and the NSW Farmers Associations.
