Rice Field Day to celebrate research and innovation in the business of rice farming

23 Feb 2017 9:02 AM -
The rice industry’s premier research showcase, the Rice Field Day, is on again at ‘Old Coree’, Conargo Rd, Jerilderie.

Following a very successful rice field day at Old Coree in 2016, the Rice Industry will be holding the annual Field Day on Thursday 9 March commencing at 9.00am.

The Field Day is designed to showcase the latest in rice research and innovations in the rice-farming system.

Rice R&D Committee Chairman, Ian Mason, said the theme for the 2017 Field Day is ‘Tradition, Technology, Productivity – A Balancing Act’, highlighting the importance of the industry’s R&D program for improvements in on-farm production and water-use efficiencies.

“Again, this year there will be something for everyone at the field day, with a choice in the morning between field walks on the latest rice R&D or a business & innovation forum” Mr Mason said.
