Lockyer Valley Growers will be hosting a barbeque, open to Lockyer Valley Growers members and vegetable levy payers. PotatoLink and the Soil Wealth ICP teams have arranged for Kelvin Montagu from Applied Horticultural Research to present on cover cropping and strip tillage. Kelvin will explore how cover crops and strip tillage can be utilised to build resilience of soil to weather events and to alleviate the pressure of rising input costs like fertiliser and fuel.
12:00pm-4:15pm including lunch
(Panel discussion will be held from 2:45pm-3:30pm)
Join the Soil Wealth ICP team at the Annual Vegetable Industry Seminar at Hort Connections 2022 as we explore cutting-edge practices and technologies that are key to improving productivity, profitability and sustainability in the Australian vegetable industry.
Leading growers will provide first-hand experience and insights from hosting a demonstration site as part of the project over the past eight years.
Save the date: At the cutting edge - Area-wide management of insect-vectored viral and bacterial diseases
Time: 12:00pm-1:00pm AEST
Area wide management strategies for vector-borne diseases will help to prevent or minimise the development of insecticide resistance in vector populations, improve the efficiency of biological agents released for control of vectors, and better protect host resistance genes against the emergence of resistance-breaking strains of the viruses. It also provides management options when host resistance genes are not available.
