The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

River­ine Plains Inc is host­ing two Grains Re­search and De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (GRDC) spray ap­pli­ca­tion work­shops on Septem­ber 13 and 14.

Printed by Robert El­lis, your WISS LTD Wool Bro­ker lo­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Phone: (03) 9369 2077 or Mo­bile: 0417 334 659.

The half-day work­shops will be con­ducted by Bill Gor­don, from Bill Gor­don Con­sult­ing and are de­signed to as­sist farm­ers to get the most from their spray equip­ment.

Bill is a con­sul­tant who has de­liv­ered a num­ber of GRDC funded projects re­lated to ap­pli­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy and drift man­age­ment to the Aus­tralian agri­cul­tural in­dus­try.

Through a com­bi­na­tion of prac­ti­cal demon­stra­tion and ‘sit-down’ train­ing, Bill will pro­vide up-to-date in­for­ma­tion on noz­zle se­lec­tion, droplet be­hav­iour, drift re­duc­tion, weather for spray­ing and in­ver­sion risk. He will also dis­cuss the need for dif­fer­ent set­ups de­pend­ing on the type of spray job at hand, re­cent changes to reg­u­la­tion and her­bi­cide re­sis­tance. Two work­shops will be held in the River­ine Plains re­gion: Dookie – Thurs­day, Septem­ber 13 (1pm-4pm, 940 Dookie-Nalinga Road) and Ruther­glen – Fri­day, Septem­ber 14 (9am-12pm, 124 Chiltern Val­ley Road).

There is no charge to at­tend the work­shops. Th­ese work­shops are funded by the GRDC as part of the prac­ti­cal and ap­plied work­shops and com­mu­ni­ca­tions to pro­mote key mes­sages and re­sources to max­imise the ef­fec­tive­ness of spray ap­pli­ca­tions in the south­ern re­gion project.

Book­ings are es­sen­tial as work­shops are strictly lim­ited to 25 at­ten­dees.
