Agriculture Vic expertise on hand at field days
Agriculture Victoria are encouraging farmers to visit them at the Wimmera Machinery Field Days this year for the latest information on grains research, land management practices, and animal health.

The Agriculture Victoria team will also have copies of one of its newest publications ‘A guide for farmers in using seasonal forecasts in South Eastern Australia’.

This booklet includes grower case studies, information about the key climate drivers, an explanation of wetter versus dryer climate patterns and the latest insights and tips.

Information about animal health, crop diseases and innovative crop research occurring in the Wimmera Mallee will also be on hand.

Farmers interested in the forecast for the coming season can also drop in to discuss what is ahead and the likely impacts in 2020.
