APPLICATIONS are now open for the South Australian Grain Industry Trust’s 2020 round of funding for research projects to further improve the SA grain industry.
THE South Australian Grain Industry Trust (SAGIT) has awarded almost $2 million towards 18 research projects in its 2019 funding program. The successful projects – which were chosen from a pool of more than 35 applicants – include diverse topics ranging from improving on-farm grain storage to a wheat production competition for high school students.
The Hart Field-Site Group has been running a SAGIT-funded trial looking at the efficacy of herbicides in different stubble heights and at different volumes. As part of this, it recently hosted spray guru Bill Gordon to lead a grower workshop. SAGIT captured this short video explaining the trial and how growers can use simple tools as a cost-effective trial before spraying.
