Maxiise Coverage Minimise Loss 2024 - keynote guest speaker, Bill Gordon

WORKSHOPS TO HELP FARMERS MAXIMISE SPRAY COVERAGE AND MINIMISE LOSS IN 2024

A new workshop will be held in the Mid North next month to help unravel the keys to current best practice spray application, and the tools to achieve it.

The ‘Maximise coverage – minimise loss: making every spray drop count’ interactive workshops will be held at Balaklava, Spalding and Hart, and are a joint initiative of the Hart Field-Site Group and GRDC.

Hart executive officer Sandy Kimber said the free workshops would provide farmers with practical information to support spraying best practice in 2024.

“Importantly, we’ll be placing a strong emphasis on how to achieve that,” she said.

“The reality is, there are a number of variables that add complexity to each spray application, so we’ll work through various real-life scenarios during the course of the day.

“If we can arm farmers with the tools to make the best possible spraying decisions every time, we’ll see positive outcomes for everyone in terms of pest, weed and disease control, farm economics, the community and the environment.”

Guest speakers will include Bill Gordon (ICAN); Andre Sabeeney (Nufarm / Hart); Dennis Hoiberg (Lessons Learnt Consulting); Michael McManus (PIRSA); John Nairn (CoTL – operators of Mid North Mesonet); Leet Wilksch (agbyte); Damien Sommerville (Spalding/Burra farmer and ex spray contractor); Andrew Mitchell (Mintaro farmer and vigneron).
