Field trip to Hamilton: Research & Ryegrass

Join MacKillop Farm Management Group for a daytrip to Hamilton and surrounds with Chris Preston (University of Adelaide), James Manson (Southern Farming Systems) and Penny Riffkin (Agriculture Victoria).  We’ll discuss the latest developments in integrated weed management for annual ryegrass control and inspect SFS’s on-farm trial at Tabor. The application and impact of chaff lining on weed seed banks, in combination with different pre and post emergent chemical strategies will be explored. A tour of the Agriculture Victoria Research Station will include the outcomes of projects looking to optimise crop yields and grow alternative legumes in the High Rainfall Zone.
