Including guest presenter Audrey Delahunty on the impact of frost and heat on lentils.
Thinking of growing lentils or chickpeas? Join us in a pre seeding discussion group to ensure that you get the most out of your pulse crops in 2018.
The Millewa/Carwarp Pulse Check discussion group will be held at the Lake Cullelleraine Yacht Club.
Attendees do not need to have any prior knowledge in pulse production to attend.
The aim of the session is to provide national and regionally specific information and encourage discussion amongst participants to improve the knowledge of local growers and advisors to achieve on farm profitability into the future.
The GRDC Southern Pulse Extension project is delivered by a consortium of organisations involved in the pulse industry across GRDC’s Southern region.
Upcoming discussions will focus on:
- Time of sowing and frost risks
- Paddock selection and preparation
- Variety selection and adaptation
- And more…
Please bring along samples of pulse seeds to measure seed size and check seeding rates for the current season
