The course covered the issues growers need to get right to ensure they establish the best stand possible. It outlined the importance of managing the stand once established if it is to be productive and survive.

It was great to access so many new links to the industry, including lucerne specialists, and being able to talk to other producers about how they do things was a real plus. We discussed growing in different climates, different varieties of lucerne and the various market opportunities. Since then, we’ve been able to call each other, as well as the agronomists at the course to discuss progress or to ask any questions we may have.
