WA Grower Issues Shaping Updates Agenda

30 August 2011

AUSTRALIA - Issues facing Western Australian grain growers will shape the agenda of the 2012 Agribusiness Crop Updates, for which topics and speakers are now being sought.

The emphasis of the annual Perth event, supported by the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) and Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), will be on new research, results and advice with direct relevance to growers and advisers in the next one to three years.

But limited space has been reserved in the program for the presentation of new initiatives or ‘blue sky’ research expected to have longer term benefits for farm productivity and profitability.

The deadline for submissions is September 9, and the Agribusiness Crop Updates will be held on February 28 and 29.
