GrowNotes™ Alert is a free nationwide system for delivering urgent, actionable and economically important disease, pest, weed and biosecurity issues directly to you, the grower, adviser and industry body, the way you want. Real-time information from experts across Australia, to help growers increase profitability.
A GrowNotes™ Alert notification can be delivered via SMS, email, web portal or via an App for your smart devices. There are also three dedicated regional Twitter handles – @GNAlertNorth, @GNAlertSouth and @GNAlertWest – that can also be followed.
The urgency with which alerts are delivered can help reduce the impact of disease, pest and weed costs. GrowNotes™ Alert improves the relevance, reliability, speed and coverage of notifications on the incidence, prevalence and distribution of these issues within all Australian grain growing regions.
GrowNotes™ Alert is a two-way form of communication between users (predominantly growers and advisers) and our pathologists, entomologists and range of key experts across Australia – and we encourage subscribers to send in surveillance of suspect crop issues at any time, using the in-built tool. The system is also a tool to help highlight healthy crops, in turn helping to promote market access, so further encouragement is given to users to send in thriving crop and harvest photographs as well.
Best of all, GrowNotes™ Alert is free to sign up to and can only make life easier for our users – what is there to lose? You can change your preferred settings at any time and can take a look ‘over the fence’ at other areas and alternative crops by using the search function in the subscriber portal.

Once you have subscribed, email the team and we will also send you a free macro lens to attach to your smart devices for clear, up-close photographs of your crops!
GrowNotes™ Alert is co-invested by the GRDC and Agriculture Victoria. For further information, please contact the GrowNotes™ Alert team directly via: firstname.lastname@example.org
