CWFS Hosts IREC Irrigation Tour

It was great to host the Irrigation Research and Extension Committee (IREC) irrigation tour at our Research Innovation Hub (RIH) on 7 February 2018. It was the first stop on a comprehensive tour across NSW and up to Cubbie Station in Queensland.

Students from Uruguay and Brazil were on the tour, along with many keen irrigators from around the area.

There was much discussion on CSIRO barley isogenic phenology and wheat plant breeding trials at this site, as well as Neil Fettell’s time of sowing, nutrient and other trials conducted in conjunction with a number of Universities.
