pro jigsaw Left to right, David Hall from DAFWA and SEPWA Project Officer, Nigel Metz discuss the Agronomy Jigsaw project. (Please note Nigel was involved in Movember at the time of this photo).

This project will assist grain growers to maximise the benefit of their inputs which will improve the efficiency of production and reduce potential waste of inputs and increase water use efficiency. The project will be run over three years and focus on a range of issues including nutrition, lime, gypsum, radiometrics and more.

The project will be run across the south coast from Esperance to Albany and involve other grower groups including Ravensthorpe Agricultural Initiative Network (RAIN), Fitzgerald Biosphere Group (FBG) and the South Stirlings Pallinup Group.

The Agronomy Jigsaw project is funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation with support from the Department of Agriculture and Food WA.

Duration: July 2009 - June 2012
