Workshop 4: Water policy update and managing soils & nutrients for success

Open to agronomists and other service providers in the feedbase sector, this session is designed to give you the latest information on water policy for our region and give you access to practical information to get the most out of soils & nutrients this season.

Claire Miller, Dairy Australia’s Manager for Policy and Strategy will give you an update on water policy including progress of the Murray Darling Basin Plan implementation and additional water recovery measures. Claire will be fresh back from a trip to Canberra armed with the latest information and her insights on what that will mean for water availability and volatility in our region.

Lee Menhenett, Incitec Pivot, will share his knowledge in effective nutrient management to drive crop & forage performance. Lee will provide an overview of the processes that drive nutrient use efficiency and provide practical insights into issues and opportunities that need to be addressed in order to drive high agronomic performance this season.

Christian Bannan, South East Soil & Water will round off a hugely successful series of practical delivery over the last 12 months in the region by providing an overview of the impact of soil structural constraints on agronomic performance. Christian will assist you to develop strategies to identify and address soil constraints in order to drive water and nutrient efficiency, and achieve your production goals into the future.
