Corporation events open for registration
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.
