THE North Burnett Grain Growers Research and Resilience Bus Tour hits the road in June, to take growers around the region on an educational journey.
Starting Tuesday June 6, the bus will start in Monto and travel around the shire to pick up attendees to take to Toowoomba.
Wednesday will be spent at FarmFest, with a special presentation by VNET on precision farming.
Burnett Catchment Care Association extension officer Naomi Purcell said precision farming helped reduce run-off of sediment into the Great Barrier Reef.
“A lot of growers have done quite a bit of learning, so the FarmFest is about the practical side,” Ms Purcell said.
Attendees will have time to peruse FarmFest, after which they will return to Toowoomba for a key note speech by Sam Bailey.
Sam Bailey is a farmer, pilot, husband and author, who also happens to be quadriplegic.
“Farmers relate to farmers, so our listeners will be able to relate to his resilience and outlook,” Ms Purcell said.
The final day will be a Pulse Agronomy Project on Thursday at Warrah, learning about research into improving pulse yield.
