Narrabri Field Day

Plant Breeding Institute Field Day

Open to industry, researchers and the public
Discover our new wheat and canola varieties, native grains, the latest in digital agriculture technology and weed control. Join our annual field day and learn about the future direction of the grains industry.

14 September, 2022

12.00-5.00pm (AEST)

This year's event will feature talks, field demonstrations, and an industry Q&A on the future of the grains industry, all under the theme of Evolution of Grains.

As our climates changes and global markets become less reliable in an ever-changing world, there will be impacts on our food supply chains and grains will not be immune.

New genetics in traditional crops, new crops and different crop management strategies will play an important role in tackling food insecurity.

Join us as we highlights some of the strategies that scientists here in Narrabri and across the northwest are using to better position our grains industries to manage this increased instability.
