Hart's 2017 regional intern Dylan Bruce

The Hart Field-Site Group has welcomed Dylan Bruce (picture left) as its new regional intern in applied grains research.

Almost back on home turf, Dylan grew up on a farm at Andrews before undertaking an agricultural science degree at The University of Adelaide, Waite Campus, and completing an honours degree last year.

Dylan said he was looking forward to getting stuck into the role which will see him working with the Hart Field-Site Group and SARDI for the next 12 months across a wide range of research projects.

As part of the internship - funded by Hart, the South Australian Grains Industry Trust and South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) - Dylan will be based in Clare but will also spend four weeks working with SARDI at the Waite campus. Read the full story...


Regional Internship in Applied Grains Research
A regional internship offers graduate students one year training in applied grains research and development (R & D). The internship will be based in Clare, South Australia with the Hart Field-Site Group (HFSG). The intern will work with HFSG research manager on a daily basis, and collaborate with other researchers, industry, consultants and growers to deliver research projects in regional South Australia.
The HFSG conducts a large number of trials across the Mid-North and interns will contribute to research areas such as:
  • Weed management and control
  • Soil fertility and crop nutrition
  • Crop entomology
  • Agronomy and seeding systems
The research options may be tailored to your specific interests. Research skills you will gain include trial design and management, sampling, statistical analysis of data and written and oral communication with growers and advisers. You will assist with the preparation of HFSG events (eg. field days and workshops) and have the opportunity to network and attend industry events (eg. GRDC updates).
Eligibility: Students who have completed a Bachelor of Agricultural Sciences or equivalent
