June 2020

It has been an encouraging start to the season across much of New South Wales, with most areas receiving reasonable falls, but across Queensland the majority of growers are still anxiously waiting for rain to assure emerging crops or commence planting.

So if you are back in the office after planting or you’re waiting to start in the paddock you might have time to tune into the GRDC 2020 Farm Business Updates, which will be delivered online from June 22-26.

In a forced break from tradition, the annual Updates will be beamed directly into the homes and offices of growers and advisers, ensuring they have access to expert advice and insights to guide their business through this year and beyond.

While the online Update format is a departure from the norm, the latest business information on budgeting, interest rates and investment planning, as well as the global outlook for grain and tactics for managing grain market risk remain firmly on the agenda.

To register for these free online sessions click on the above links or for a full agenda go to the GRDC website or email Susan McDonnell at susan.mcdonnell@grdc.com.au.

Grower groups, advisers, researchers and people involved in agribusiness are also encouraged by the GRDC to put up their hands to assist in the delivery of frost research outcomes back to Australian grain growers.

The GRDC is seeking expressions of interest from individuals and organisations interested in working closely with lead frost extension facilitators expected to be appointed in each GRDC region (west, north and south). Submissions close June 30.

To contact any of the GRDC Northern team call 07 4571 4800 or email northern@grdc.com.au.

Stay safe and we hope the season works in your favour.
