SADGA & MFMG COMBINED CROPWALK – OCTOBER 13TH 12 NOON

SADGA and MFMG come together again to provide growers with another huge program. There is lots to see with sites spanning across SA’s South East and Victoria’s West Wimmera (covid restrictions not withstanding!!)

Starting with BBQ lunch at Wolseley and a chat with Dr Hugh Wallwork and Prof Jason Able, we head out (weather permitting) to see the wheat variety trails NE of Wolseley, then over to the SADGA/FMC durum-Overwatch trial. All being well we cross the border to the Edenhope-Kaniva Rd for the NVT Durum, Wheat and Barley Trials and the NVT Pulse Site. We round up the day at Alwyn Dyer’s shed for a BBQ and an update of the progress of the Seed Terminator.

Happy 30th Anniversary Durum!

2020 is the 30th Anniversary of the release of Durum Seed in Southern Australia

2020 marks the 30th year that the first durum crops were commercially grown in South Australia.  In 1990 twelve growers each multiplied two tonnes of the variety Yallaroi in order to produce 500 tonnes of seed, which in 1991 was distributed amongst another 40 growers to produce 13,700 tonnes.
