The annual updates provide growers and agronomists with support and advice for the current season and beyond, based on the outcomes of cutting-edge GRDC investments into research and development.

GRDC Senior Manager North, Jan Edwards said the update programs were developed in consultation with local grower groups and agronomists, to ensure topics were seasonally relevant, practical and supported profitable agronomic decisions.
