BCG’s Main Field Day sites for 2022 have been confirmed. BCG Research Manager James Murray said the two sites, just north of Nullawil, have been chosen to enhance the research undertaken by the organisation.
“One is a lentil stubble on the corner of the Calder Highway and Burgins Road and is hosted by David and De-Anne and John and Robyn Ferrier. The other will be a barley stubble at Warne and is hosted by Cameron Warne,” James said.
“Having two sites with different paddock histories allows us to ensure we are maximising our research and therefore the learnings for our members and the broader farming community. We are always looking at ways to improve and we found the diversity of the two sites in 2021 provided key benefits. Visual results for those who attended our field day last year was one of these benefits,” James concluded.
Trials to be sown at the sites this year include: long coleoptile wheat agronomy, variety trials of all crops, Septoria Tritici Blotch management, safflower agronomy, silicon supplemented crops, pulse agronomy and more to be confirmed in the coming weeks.
The Main Field Day will be held on Wednesday the 14th of September.
The 2022 BCG research program extends across the Mallee, Wimmera and North Central region and consist of approximately 130 research trials.
