THE EVAN MOLL GEROGERY FIELD DAY RETURNS FOR 2021

Riverine Plains is pleased to announce that The Evan Moll Gerogery Field Day will be held on Thursday 11 November, 2021, at the Moll family property ‘Elderslie’, from 9am to 1pm.

Riverine Plains CEO, Catherine Marriott, said the group was excited to be able to again host this long-standing event given the cancellation of last year’s event due to COVID restrictions.

“This event has been hosted by the Moll family for well over 80 years and is a really important day for local farmers, with the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) National Variety Trials (NVT) wheat and canola trials a highlight of the day” explained Ms Marriott.

“The NVT sessions provide an opportunity to see first-hand how current varieties are performing locally, as well as what’s in the pipe-line for the future, as well as any agronomic issues in the lead up to harvest” she added.

Peter Matthews, NSW DPI will lead the wheat NVT discussion, while Don McCaffery, NSW DPI will lead the canola NVT discussion, with varieties and cereal rust ratings expected to generate considerable interest from farmers.

For the past two seasons, the Moll family have also been involved in the GRDC Hyper Yielding Crops project, hosting a canola demonstration to look at optimum nitrogen rates to maximise yield. Riverine Plains Project Officer, Kate Coffey, and host farmer, Daniel Moll, will talk about the 2020 results as well as any carryover effects seen in this year’s grazed DS Bennett wheat crop.

The Field Day will also have a focus on drought preparedness.

“While the past few seasons have been kind, drought is and always will be part of the Australian landscape” said Ms Marriott.

“Through our involvement in the Southern NSW and Victoria Drought Hubs, and the FRRR’s Networks to Build Drought Resilience program, funded by the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund, we are now seeking input from farmers and agribusiness professionals to understand the needs and gaps for our farmers and community, to ensure we are better prepared for the next one” she explained.

“These projects all have a sharp focus on delivering solutions to farmers and rural communities and will begin our in-person consultation process at Gerogery, to start understanding and designing programs for our members and the broader community” added Ms Marriott.

The Evan Moll Field Day will be held from 8:30am – 1pm on Thursday 11 November, 2021 at the Moll family property, ‘Elderslie’, 167 Fielder-Moll Road, Gerogery. A free BBQ lunch will be provided by the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal, through the Enhancing Community Networks for Drought Resilience in the Riverine Plains project, in conjunction with Seed Force.
