Low-down on seed plant­ing

Central and North Burnett Times - - THE FENCE POST -

FOR­AGE oat grow­ers in Queens­land plan ahead for this year’s plant­ings with the re­lease of the new va­ri­ety guide for 2015.

Depart­ment of Agri­cul­ture, Fish­eries and Forestry (DAFF) se­nior plant breeder Bruce Win­ter said there would be a lot of for­age oat plant­ing again this year fol­low­ing a dry spring and patchy sum­mer rain­fall.

“The new brochure pro­vides guide­lines to im­prove crops with an up­dated list of for­age oat va­ri­eties com­mer­cially avail­able from seed mer­chants,” Mr Win­ter said.

To find out more about fac­tors to con­sider when plant­ing this year’s for­age oat crops, down­load the for­age oat va­ri­ety guide 2015 by vis­it­ing www.daff.qld.gov.au or phone 13 25 23 for a copy.
