THE EVAN MOLL GEROGERY FIELD DAY

The Evan Moll Gerogery Field Day will be hosted by Riverine Plains Inc on Thursday 8th November, 2018.

“The day, previously known as the Gerogery National Variety Trial and Agronomy Field Day, is an important one for growers in the region, with a key aspect being the inspection of the cereal and canola varieties included in the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) National Variety Trials (NVT)” explained Riverine Plains Inc Executive Officer, Fiona Hart.

“The NVT trials provide an excellent opportunity to assess new varieties before their commercial release and the day also allows some of the issues that are developing in the lead-up to harvest to be addressed” said Fiona.

The cereal NVT session and discussions will be led by Peter Matthews (NSW DPI), while Don McCaffery (NSW DPI) will lead the canola NVT variety discussions. Don will also speak about frost damage and how this can be influenced by variety.
