The Stubble Project paddock walks will be held at Coreen , Rennie and Henty on the 1st August, 2017.
The first series of paddock walks for the 2017 season will focus on crop establishment and vigour
under the various stubble management options. We will also discuss the cumulative yield results
from previous seasons as well as the results from the in-canopy temperature sensors installed at the Yarrawonga, Dookie and Coreen sites.
Details for the upcoming on-farm discussion groups are:

Commencing at Tomlinson Ag’s property, Emu Park Rd, Coreen (gate is on the western side of the channel, between Minns and Straherne roads), before moving on to Adam Davis’ property at Rennie to view the Fast-Track Ag Demonstration Site, which is looking at practical and economical ways to lower stubble height.
