The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Ag Life -

Reg­is­tra­tions are open for Grains Re­search and De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion events through­out Vic­to­ria in early 2019.

GRDC Grains Re­search Up­dates and Farm Busi­ness Up­dates – de­signed to in­form grain­grow­ers’ de­ci­sion-mak­ing lead­ing into next year’s crop­ping season, and be­yond – will be in Fe­bru­ary and March.

GRDC south­ern re­gion grower-re­la­tions man­ager Court­ney Ram­sey said in­for­ma­tion, in­sight and advice to be pre­sented at the ses­sions had the po­ten­tial to un­der­pin im­proved agro­nomic prac­tices and farm-busi­ness op­er­a­tions for in­creased prof­itabil­ity.

“The up­dates will each fea­ture a line-up of ex­pert speak­ers who will de­liver the lat­est find­ings from GRDC re­search in­vest­ments, which have rel­e­vance to and im­pli­ca­tions for the state’s grow­ers,” she said.

“Fur­ther op­por­tu­ni­ties to gen­er­ate profit growth within Vic­to­ria’s grain-grow­ing en­ter­prises will be ex­plored at GRDC Farm Busi­ness Up­dates, where the eco­nomic im­pli­ca­tions of prac­tice change by grow­ers and adop­tion of new tech­nolo­gies will be in­ves­ti­gated.”

The up­dates will start on Fe­bru­ary 26 and 27, when the Vic­to­ria’s premier grains re­search, de­vel­op­ment and ex­ten­sion event is in Bendigo.

The Bendigo up­date plays an im­por­tant role in en­abling re­searchers to trans­fer their knowl­edge from GRDC in­vest­ments to ad­vis­ers and grow­ers, and for show­cas­ing the lat­est de­vel­op­ments in tech­nol­ogy.

Re­gional Grains Re­search Up­dates will be at Dunkeld on Fe­bru­ary 28, Hopetoun on March 14 and Boort on March 15.

Farm Busi­ness Up­dates will be at Sale on March 6 and Gee­long on March 14.
