Riverine Plains Inc has partnered with FAR Australia to establish the Riverine Research Centre. This exciting collaboration provides an independent focal point for regional and national research projects in the Victorian/NSW border region.
Located at Burramine, south west 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 early-sown long season wheats, the influence of frost on cereals, barley agronomy (fungicide & N interaction), and nitrogen research in wheat, among other trials.
Spring Field Day!
The Riverine Research Centre Spring Field Day will be held at on Thursday 28 September. Join us for a tour of the important local research being undertaken at the site as well as special presentations on cereal agronomy from key speakers. For further information, please download the RPI & FAR Spring Field Day Flyer 2017.
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.
