2018 Crop Review

2018 SCF Crop Updates and Review of 2017 Trials

2018 SCF Crop Updates and Review of 2017 TrialsSCF held our Crop Updates and Trials Review on Thursday March 8. Highlights from the day included a presentation by CBH CEO, Jimmy Wilson, and a discussion by Stefan Vogel of Rabobank on the impact of Black Sea wheat on our markets.  Other popular presentations from the day included the review of our 2017 trials by R&D Co-ordinator Nathan Dovey (feed wheat), R&D Consultant John Blake and member Jon Beasley (noodle wheat) and Jeremy Lemon (deep ripping).  Jeremy even showed us all what a multi-talented person he is, not only presenting some very interesting results from the deep ripping trials at Curwen’s and Goad’s, but also presenting some of it as a song!

Presentations from the day are available here on the SCF website for those of you who missed out.  The SCF 2017 Trials Review Booklet was also presented at the Crop Updates, and is also available for download on the website here.  If you would like a hard copy mailed out, please get in touch with Kathi (kathi.mcdonald@scfarmers.org.au) or Eva (admin@scfarmers.org.au) in the SCF office.

SCF would like to thank CBH for their ongoing support and sponsorship of the day, and GrainGrowers for their sponsorship of the Sundowner at the end of the day.
