South Australian grains industry researchers gathered at the Adelaide Showgrounds late last week for the South Australian Grains Industry Trust Annual Update.
SAGIT invests more than $2 million a year in supporting research crucial to advancing the SA grain industry. It supports trials and projects in a range of areas of grain growing, farming systems, soil management, harvesting, storage, processing and marketing, and for dissemination of technical information to growers.
Presentations on existing and completed SAGIT projects were made by SARDI's Amanda Cook, Katherine Linsell, Courtney Peirce and Liz Farquharson, Allison Pearson, The University of Adelaide, James Barr, UniSA, and Upper North Farming Systems' Ruth Sommerville.
These presentations were followed by an informative round-table session where everybody discussed the question: How can we work together to advance the SA grains industry?
The feedback and information from this session will help SAGIT trustees and staff to make future funding decisions.
