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

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.
