The Evan Moll Gerogery Field Day

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - On The Land -

The Evan Moll Gerogery Field Day will be hosted by River­ine Plains Inc this Thurs­day, Novem­ber 8.

River­ine Plains Inc Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, Fiona Hart said the day, pre­vi­ously known as the Gerogery Na­tional Va­ri­ety Trial and Agron­omy Field Day, is an im­por­tant one for grow­ers in the re­gion, with a key as­pect be­ing the in­spec­tion of the ce­real and canola va­ri­eties in­cluded in the Grains Re­search and Devel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (GRDC) Na­tional Va­ri­ety Tri­als (NVT).

“The NVT tri­als pro­vide an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to as­sess new va­ri­eties be­fore their com­mer­cial re­lease and the day also al­lows some of the is­sues that are de­vel­op­ing in the lead-up to har­vest to be ad­dressed,” Fiona said.

The ce­real NVT ses­sion and dis­cus­sions will be led by Peter Matthews (NSW DPI), while Don McCaf­fery (NSW DPI) will lead the canola NVT va­ri­ety dis­cus­sions. Don will also speak about frost dam­age and how this can be in­flu­enced by va­ri­ety.

A pre­sen­ta­tion around the best for­age op­tions and seed avail­abil­ity for 2019 will be made by Peter Matthews (NSW DPI) and David Leah (Seed Force). James White­ley (AGT) will also lead a pad­dock in­spec­tion of the new dual pur­pose wheat, Il­labo.

Adrian Clancy (AC Ag Com­modi­ties) and Lachy Herbert (Rive­rina Oils) will also dis­cuss ce­real and canola grain mar­ket­ing.

The field day will be held from 12.30pm – 4.15pm on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 8 at The Moll fam­ily prop­erty, “Elder­slie”, Field­erMoll Road Gerogery, com­menc­ing with a free BBQ lunch pro­vided by Seed Force.

“The day is al­ways strongly sup­ported by the lo­cal com­mu­nity and we en­cour­age farm­ers to come along for what will be an in­for­ma­tive and so­cial day,” Fiona said.
