Warwick Daily News - South West Queensland Rural Weekly - - Trades & Services -

WITH new chal­lenges to farm pro­duc­tiv­ity and prof­itabil­ity test­ing the Queens­land in­dus­try each year, grow­ers are be­ing urged to keep abreast of the lat­est re­search and devel­op­ment in­sights by tak­ing part in the Grains Re­search and Devel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion 2019 Grains Re­search Up­dates.

How cli­mate change is im­pact­ing north­ern farm­ing sys­tems, new fron­tiers in ce­real breed­ing, nu­tri­tional im­pacts of drought and in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy that al­lows real-time mea­sure­ment of grain, mois­ture and ni­tro­gen us­ing your mo­bile phone in the pad­dock will be among the many top­ics ad­dressed at the com­ing Up­dates.

Goondi­windi will host a two-day up­date on March 5 and 6 at the Cultural Cen­tre; a grower up­date will be held at Moonie on March 7 at the Moonie Sports Club; fol­lowed by a grower up­date on March 8 at Warra at the Warra Memo­rial Hall.

Cor­po­ra­tion Grower Re­la­tions Man­ager North Susan McDon­nell said Up­date top­ics were se­lected by lo­cal plan­ning committees and were re­gion­ally rel­e­vant, cred­i­ble and sci­ence-based new in­for­ma­tion.

“There is an em­pha­sis on in­for­ma­tion that is prac­ti­cal and ready for on-farm adop­tion with the po­ten­tial to make a tan­gi­ble dif­fer­ence to grow­ers’ bot­tom lines,” she said.

“On be­half of grow­ers the GRDC con­tin­ues to in­vest in re­search that has a real and tan­gi­ble im­pact on farm prof­itabil­ity and po­si­tions the in­dus­try well to face fu­ture chal­lenges.”
