Good weather provided successful day for Mid North Crop Walk

Approximately 35 interested farmers and industry representatives attended the Mid North Crop Walk which commenced at Roseworthy College Trial Site after which the group had an enjoyable lunch at the Roseworthy Hotel, and subsequently visited the Turretfield trial site.
The day began with an unexpected visit from Ramesh Segaran from URAF, University of Adelaide with his drone which he demonstrated and spoke to the group regarding the value of this asset and its uses in agriculture and how these drones are used on trial sites. drone-of-trial-site
