Accelerating Change held part 2 of the Successful Winter Cropping program in Echuca in August. Farmers and agronomists came together to hear about key agronomic management issues and opportunities occurring this season in winter cereals. The day also covered management decisions to optimise quality of winter cereal silage. Farmers Andrew & Christine Sebire spoke about how they integrate winter cereals into their dairy feedbase, and how it was performing in 2017. Agronomist Luke Nagle covered off on how agronomic management was progressing, what to look out for now and what we can expect as the rest of the season plays out. Silage consultant David Lewis spoke about the importance of planning from the start to reach your silage goals, and making good in-season decisions to maximise your return on investment and quality of end product.
