Canola systems are being examined as part of a GRDC and Riverine Plains Inc field day to be held on Thursday 26 June, 2018.
The day aims to help growers work through issues around varietal selection, good agronomy and adequate nutrition by visiting trial sites established at Daysdale, Coreen and Howlong.
The field day will begin at 10.00am at the canola systems trial site at Daysdale, which was established by Farmanco in partnership with Riverine Plains Inc and is designed to evaluate the profitability of different canola systems using hybrid, triazine tolerant, imi tolerant, high oleic and Roundup Ready® technologies.
The second part of the field day involves visits to trials sown as part of a GRDC investment investigating sulphur and nitrogen nutrition in canola. These trials were established to review regionally accepted sulphur and nitrogen application rates for canola in light of the good application histories many paddocks now have.
The field day will commence at 10am at the Maloney family farm, 95 Saffron Road, Daysdale, NSW. The second site visit will be from 12 noon at the Tomlinson family’s farm, Emu Park Road, Coreen. The third site visit will commence at 2:15pm at the Trevethan Family farm, Riverina Highway, Howlong.
This event is free and all are welcome. Signage will be provided on the day and lunch is included. Seed company representatives will be on hand to answer questions about different varieties at the canola systems trial site.
