2020 SADGA Cropwalks

SADGA has developed two very intensive spring cropwalk programs to view the southern region trial sites for our members and interested participants.

Come along to the SADGA forums to hear about varying topics that ultimately impact on your bottom line. Hear from Dr Sue Stewart (Uni Adelaide) on barley malt flavour, Dr Anh Pham (Uni Adelaide) for the latest regarding drought tolerance research in barley, and Professors Diane Mather and Jason Able (Uni Adelaide) on durum germplasm that has enhanced levels of lutein (value-adding for the durum industry) – just to name a few of the speakers and the areas in which they will focus on.

Due to COVID-19 and the border closure between SA and Victoria our South East cropwalks will only occur in South Australia. However we are looking forward to working with MacKillop Farm Management Group again this year starting at Wolseley and finishing at the Keith NVT.

Dates have been set as follows:

Wednesday, September 2nd: Mid North Durum Crop Walk at Roseworthy:  Program & Maps

Our cropwalks are a free service to Durum Growers and SADGA is looking forward to you joining us on site however on this occasion REGISTRATION WILL BE ESSENTIAL.
