    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description

    Presenters: Doris Blaesing (RMCG), Marek Matuszek (AgLogic) Tim Walker (Walker Ag; PotatoLink Regional Rep, Tas)

    Keen to cut the costs of inputs and produce more sustainably?

    Well, the presenters are keen to assist potato, vegetable and onion growers and agronomists who have been struggling with these issues.

    The session will be informative and interactive with a focus on how growers can get the most out of the inputs they are applying, while minimising waste, and maintaining yields and quality. 

    So, come along with any questions, concerns and comments and be prepared to share those with fellow growers and agronomists during the workshop.

    Topics include:

    Doris and Tim, during their nutrition presentation, will focus on:

    • Timing of application aligned to crop growth stages
    • Removal rates
    • Monitoring and sampling
    • Methods of application 
    • Nutrient function

    Marek and Tim will head the irrigation discussion in the next part of the workshop, focusing on:

    • Use of ag tech – probes and weather stations for monitoring soil moisture and other conditions: How do they work? What data is obtained? How do you interpret the data? How can they help with decision making?

    Also, there will be a discussion on different needs for different crops and varieties.

    And we will also hear leading growers’ experiences with the above topics.

    This workshop is brought to you by PotatoLink, Soil Wealth ICP, VegNET Tasmania, AgLogic, and the onion communications and extension project.
