The 2017 BCG Main Field Day is just four weeks away, and farmers, agronomists and industry are invited to the Curyo main research site on Wednesday 13 September to inspect more than 25 trials.
Spread across two paddocks, trials span Craig Rickard’s lentil stubble paddock and Jim Rickard’s fallow paddock on the Sunraysia highway, approximately 25km north-west of Birchip.
BCG CEO Chris Sounness explained that the program will be highly informative.
“The BCG team have planned a full day featuring highly regarded industry experts who will share their knowledge with farmers on a range of production challenges and opportunities that will aim to improve the profitability of their crops,”
The range of trials to be presented on the day will cover many production challenges including weed management, disease pressure, time of sowing, variety choice, break crop management and much more.
Mr Sounness said that “This event is designed to help growers and consultants learn about new agronomic strategies to maximise crop yield and farm profitability,”
ADAMA marketing development manager Alistair Crawford will present information to farmers in front of trials demonstrating two new ADAMA products; Ultro® which is a pre-emergent herbicide, and Veritas® which is a foliar fungicide.
