This will include rain water harvesting and solutions to keep silt out of water courses. AW and CSF will also be giving advice about the grant funding opportunities currently available.
With the price and a focus on carbon, nitrogen use efficiency has become increasingly important. Agrovista will be demonstrating more recent alternative products to make crop nutrients more effective. And be on hand to discuss current topics of the season.
Demonstrating early results from a series of trials at Morley investigating maize seed depth, alternative starter fertilisers and seed furrow closing.
Maize Growers Association
