This trial is similar to the trial being conducted at Beelbangera. The trial at Beelbangera generated a lot of interest further east in 2017 and as such an additional site in the Junee area in 2018 is engaging growers from that area, helping to further evaluate the technology.

Collaborating with SARDI, funded by GRDC. This trial is part of a GRDC funded project which aims to develop economic thresholds for Russian wheat aphid across rainfall zones of the Australian grain industry. Ag Grow Agronomy has two sites in 2018, a dryland and an irrigated site.
This trial looks at the crop safety of various pulse crops, including field peas, lentils, lupins, vetch and chickpeas, following the use of various herbicides applied to a wheat crop in 2017
Collaborating with LongReach Plant Breeders, funded by LongReach. Two sites (dryland and irrigation) comparing the performance of wheat lines for yield, grain quality, agronomic attributes and disease reaction for all major production environments in Australia. (more…)
Collaborating with Arysta LifeScience, funded by Ag Grow and Arysta LifeScience. This trial aims to determine the efficacy and crop safety of ARY452 applied alone and with mixing partners applied early post emergent for weed control in triazine tolerant canola (more…)
Collaborating with FarmLink, Eva Moffitt Senior Research Officer This trial is being conducted at Temora, at the Temora Agricultural Innovation Centre (TAIC). The trials aim to investigate new and commonly used inoculants and rates and management techniques to improve nitrogen fixation through enhanced nodulation in lentils, field peas and vetch on acid soil.

Collaborating with CWFS, funded by GRDC. Growers in central and southern NSW are interested in sowing wheat earlier than the traditional May sowing window. There are a number of drivers for this change including: 1. Advances in summer fallow management, which have led to improved soil water storage and sowing opportunities (more…)
Funded by Ag Grow Agronomy, Nuseed, Pioneer Seeds and BayerCrop Science. This trial aims to compare the performance of potential canola varieties with existing canola varieties commonly grown on dryland in Southern NSW. Varieties include conventional, clearfield, triazine tolerant and roundup ready types. It is a collaboration with seed companies Nuseed, Pioneer Seeds, (more…)
