The important research is communicated via an extensive extension program. Our flagship events, Trials Review Day and the Main Field Day, are permanent fixtures of the agronomic calendar and these are supported by a suite of workshops, discussion groups, field days, crop walks and symposiums delivered independently or in partnership with a range of collaborators.

RSVPing for events makes it easier for us to plan ahead and ensure that you have the best possible experience!

GRDC Hands On Precision Agriculture Training – Longerenong

04 Mar 2021 @ 9:00am - 3:00pm
229 Longerenong Road, Longerenong, Victoria, 3401, Wimmera

This free, interactive workshop will provide growers with hands-on experience with a range of PA technologies and how they can be used to identify and manage variability and improve productivity and profitability.

Workshop sessions will focus on proven technologies and practices currently in use by growers and advisors including:

  • how to identify variability (yield mapping, remote sensing, soil and pH mapping, in season monitoring)
  • how to identify the key causes of yield and profit variability (including acidity/alkalinity, nutrient deficiencies, weed pressure, water logging etc.)
  • techniques to address yield and profit variability (variable rate, in paddock blending)
  • predictive analytics (yield forecasts, input management, pest and disease forecasts)
  • mobile device, tablet and computer based integrative/farm management platforms.

The workshop will be facilitated by Adrian Roles, from JMAJ Consulting, and will include a case study presentation from a leading local farmer.

This workshop is suitable for farmers in the early stages of their PA journey, although all are welcome.

Attendance is strictly limited to 20 people so registration is essential.
