POST EVENT

Farmers armed with knowledge to tackle seeding 2017
The header may have only just gone back into the shed, but as we head into April and with Anzac Day less than a month away, it will signal the start of seeding for many. Growers keen to be up-to-date with the latest trial research results, commodity market trends and to get themselves in the seeding mindset, gathered in Clare on March 23 for the annual Getting the Crop In seminar. Sponsored by Rabobank, the free seminar attracted 135 participants, who were the first to get their hands on the 2016 Hart Trials Results book. In 2016, 30 trials across 2000 plots were hosted or conducted by the Hart Field-Site Group. Read more...
