Tatyoon talks gear up for sowing

Grain growers in the Tatyoon district will hear the ‘good oil’ on the upcoming growing season and canola disease management at a breakfast meeting on Wednesday 13 March 2019.

Agriculture Victoria’s Seasonal Risk Agronomists, Dale Boyd and Dale Grey will provide the latest information on the soil moisture readings from a new probe near Tatyoon and the most up-to-date climate forecast for autumn and winter.

The event will also feature a canola pathologist from Marcroft Grains Pathology, who will update growers on new options for managing the ever-challenging disease, blackleg.

To round off this workshop, an interactive session with overviews from local agronomists will provide growers with information about issues to look out for in the upcoming growing season.

Agriculture Victoria Regional Manager for Grains South West, Tony Fay, said the event will provide growers with some tools to help manage for the season ahead.

“The new soil moisture probe near Tatyoon will give local growers more confidence in estimating the financial and production risk of their crops this season,” he said.

The event will begin with breakfast at 8am at the Tatyoon Recreation Reserve, and presentations will begin at 8:30am.

Registration is free but please RSVP on 0448 146 604 or on EventBrite.
