Spring Field Day 2018

The SCF Spring Field Day was held last week on Thursday September 27. Well attended with over 100 farmers and industry members attending, the day started at the Kendenup Country Club with a range of presentations covering topics such as internet connectivity and ag technology, grain quality and CBH updates, snail control lessons from SA and using blockchain technology for marketing in to the future. A highlight of the morning session was Nuffield Chair and Esperance Grower, Andrew Fowler, presenting on managing a large mixed farming enterprise and increasing profits through crop grazing. It was then on to the buses after a quick bite to eat to look at some of SCF's and partner's trials, including the DPIRD Planet Barley agronomy trial, deep ripping and long season wheat trials and our GRDC funded legume demonstration site. The day finished with a sausage sizzle and drinks back at the Kendenup Country Club.

SCF would like to send out a big thank you to all those, members, sponsors and supporters alike, who helped in the running of the day, and a special thanks to the Nunijup Progress Association for the catering for the day.
