  • Go multi-skilling, have a field day

    Testing time...Goulburn Murray Landcare will hold an on-farm field day on Thursday, February 15.

A local on-farm Multi Species Cover Crop trial will be on show at a coming field day hosted by Goulburn Murray Landcare.

Interested land managers are invited to view the farm trial on Thursday, February 15, which has been set up to test whether growing and grazing multi-species cover crops prior to a summer corn crop increases soil health and profitability, compared to a hay crop.

Trial practicalities, management and learnings will be presented along with profitability assessments and will be followed by a Q&A session with cover crop specialists Colin Seis and Graeme Hand.

This free event is supported by Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority with funding from the Federal Government’s National Landcare Program.

The event at 295 Minchin Rd, Ardmona begins at 10am and runs until noon, with lunch provided.

■RSVP by Monday, February 12, by emailing [email protected] or phone 0412 151 652.
