The GRDC Northern Pulse Check project seeks to support and develop strong profitable pulse production systems across the GRDC Northern Region by engaging with grower, researcher, and industry stakeholders to encourage greater sharing of information through a range of pulse related extension and communications activities.
Discussion groups established through the project are allowing growers, advisors and researchers to identify the challenges and opportunities of pulse crops in the rotation.
The Riverine Plains Inc Northern Pulse Check group has met two to three times each growing season since its establishment to discuss various aspects of the pulse value chain. Meetings are facilitated by Kate Coffey, Riverine Plains Inc, with guest presenters so far having included marketers, technical specialists, researchers, pulse growers and industry experts.
