Grains and field crops
Department of Agriculture
The aims of this project are to:
• Provide regional forums for updating growers with the latest R&D in cropping systems and grain production.
• To foster participative R&D through effective interchange between agency based R&D groups, agribusiness R&D groups and grower based groups with potential to participate in R&D at a range of levels (from merely providing feedback to linking broadscale on-farm tests with the research).
• To reduce research segmentation by fostering a climate of mutual benefit in R&D exchange. There is already emergence of research segmentation from proprietary research. However, apart from an initial proprietary advantage (within a single season) the mutual benefits from R&D exchange far outweigh these initial gains.
