Please note - This news release has now been archived and may contain outdated information.
Farmers keen to learn more about new varieties of grazing cereals can attend a NSW Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) field day at Holbrook on Friday 11 November.
The field day is being held at Tim Trescowthick's property "Roachdale", 10 km out of Holbrook, where NSW DPI has established a dual-purpose cereal variety trial.
Field day organiser NSW DPI agronomist Janet Walker, who is based in Albury, said the field day would update farmers on new lines of grazing cereals and disease strategies for winter cereals including wheat, triticale, oats and barley.
“The field day will give people a good look at new grazing varieties and their grain potential,” she said.
“Practical in-the-field days like this really focus people's energies on grazing quality as well as grazing potential.
“It will be an informal day with lots of opportunities for discussion.”
NSW DPI Technical Specialist Peter Matthews will also be speaking on a range of topics related to grazing cereals.
The field day runs from 10.30 am to 12 noon. It is free and everyone is welcome.
The trial site is located on the Ralvona Lane approximately three km from the Culcairn Road.
