The Gerogery Na­tional Va­ri­ety Trial (NVT) and Agron­omy Field Day has been a fix­ture on the southern NSW crop­ping events cal­en­dar for many years.

River­ine Plains Inc is pleased to con­tinue the tra­di­tion by host­ing this year’s ‘Evan Moll Gerogery Field Day’ on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 2.

“The day is an im­por­tant event for grow­ers in the re­gion, with one of the key fea­tures be­ing the in­spec­tion of the ce­real and canola va­ri­eties in­cluded in the Grains Re­search and De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (GRDC) Na­tional Va­ri­ety Tri­als (NVT),” said River­ine Plains Inc Ex­ten­sion Of­fi­cer Dr Cas­san­dra Schefe.

“The NVT tri­als pro­vide an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to as­sess new va­ri­eties prior to their com­mer­cial re­lease.

“Don McCaf­fery (NSW DPI) will dis­cuss the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the dif­fer­ent canola va­ri­eties in the NVT tri­als, while Kurt Lind­beck (NSW DPI) will dis­cuss canola dis­ease con­trol.

“The ce­real dis­cus­sions will be led by Peter Matthews and Felic­ity Har­ris (NSW DPI), with Peter lead­ing grow­ers through the NVT tri­als, while Felic­ity will be speak­ing on flow­er­ing dates in dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties.”

Other speak­ers in­clude David Leah (Seed Force) who will speak on pas­ture va­ri­eties and John Piltz (NSW DPI), who will ad­dress pas­ture di­gestibil­ity is­sues.

Adrian Clancy (AC Ag Com­modi­ties) will also de­liver a lunchtime pre­sen­ta­tion on grain mar­ket­ing.

The field day also pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity to dis­cuss the is­sues that are de­vel­op­ing in the lead-up to har­vest.

The field day starts at 11am on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 2 at ‘Elder­slie’, Fielder-Moll Road Gerogery. A free bar­be­cue lunch will be pro­vided by Seed Force.
