Aurora Durum Crop September 2017
Lower North, South Australia
Depressed grain prices has encouraged Bute farmer James Venning along with many other farmers to pursue growing Aurora Durum as part of their crop rotation in a bid to boost profitability. Aurora has been demonstrating high yields and low screenings and of the
Durum’s it has proven to be one of the better varieties for early vigour. Paula Thompson from Stock Journal recently interviewed one of our new growers James Venning, whose father had previously grown Durum fourteen years ago but removed it from his rotations as it did not consistently provide reliability for him as a crop.
The new variety Aurora has been a winner in reliability for our growers. For more information read the attached Stock Journal article published June 1st 2017.
