Riverine Plains has recently partnered with FAR Australia to establish the Riverine Research Centre. This exciting collaboration provides a new, independent focal point for regional and national research projects in the Victorian/NSW border region.
Located south of Yarrawonga, the Riverine Research Centre is a dedicated crop research site that is host to a number of small plot research trials annually. This season, the Riverine Research Centre is undertaking research on new winter wheat germplasm, SDHI fungicides, plant growth regulators, liquid fertiliser compatibility and row spacing for early sown wheat and barley.
The Riverine Research Centre also provides a key research site for projects with national coverage and objectives, allowing for more targeted and efficient investment into local grains research, development and extension. In establishing the Riverine Research Centre, Riverine Plains and FAR Australia are also seeking to work with other sectors of the agricultural industry to provide the highest quality field research outcomes.
