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 the Entegra Sheds 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. Head back to Alwyn Dyer’s shed for an update of the progress of the Seed Terminator, unfortunately the BBQ is a victim of the covid restrictions and will not occur so the day will round out at 5pm.
[Image below: Keen interest for the 2020 MFMG Bean Trial from growers who were finding out how we can improve the nodulation for PBA Samira Beans.]
SADGA MID NORTH CROPWALK – SEPT 1ST FROM 8:45 AM
This year’s Mid North Cropwalk takes you across 4 sites and starts at Molineux Rd, Tarlee with Nufarm Canola Demo Site to visualise time of sowing, tank mixes, knockdown and volunteer control options. From Tarlee we head to Roseworthy College for the FMC Overwatch Trial and NVTs showing AGT’s new durum and barleys and InterGrain’s new bread wheat and barleys. The program finishes at AGT HQ for project updates and lunch generously supplied by AGT.
The programs for both forums have now been developed and are proving again there is still more we need to know about durums including the supportive agronomy which improves yields and grain quality, logistics and marketing both nationally and globally.
