The paddock walk will include visits to chickpea and faba bean crops near Goorambat and Devenish, Victoria. Discussions at each paddock will focus on crop establishment and early-season issues including;
• Response to sowing time, sowing rate and depth
• Plant density
• Early establishment pests and strategies
• Early crop disease identification and control strategies
• Early crop weed control strategies
• Update on market developments/opportunities for lentils, chickpeas and other pulses
Attendees do not need to have attended previous meetings or have any prior knowledge in pulse production to attend.
