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.

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.
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:
