Pasture Genetics Territory Manager Rehn Freebairn recently attended the Grains Research and Development Corporation’s (GRDC) Grains Research Update at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
The latest cropping insights and recommendations were delivered to growers and their advisers from across the state.
It was an industry briefing that touched on issues relating to pests, weeds, diseases and crop nutrition. Growers were advised to implement practice change to reduce the potential impact of such constraints and to realise opportunities for increased profit throughout the course of the coming season.
“The Research Update was highly educational, it saw industry professionals armed with the knowledge required to maintain and improve the grains sector, particularly in South Australia,” Rehn says.
The event is an important platform for researchers to transfer their knowledge from GRDC investments to advisers and growers prior to them sowing their crops each year, and for showcasing the latest developments in technology.
The two-day update was attended by a record 450 agronomists, consultants, researchers, growers and other grains industry personnel.
