Topics covered at the forum include; a talk from Henk Vrolijks and Clint Rogers about growing corn/maize for silage, grain, and end-uses. Bayers, Tim Murphy will present on licensing stewardship agreement and genetically modified accreditation.

Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board General Manager Andrew Meddle will chat about what the board can do for you, and Brian Hughes will address soil acidity issues in the Mallee.
