TRIAL MANAGER: David Peck, SARDI
FUNDER: SA Grain Industry Trust (SAGIT)
TIMEFRAME: Two years – 2022-23 and 2023-24
TRIAL OVERVIEW: This project will research novel ways of harvesting and sowing medic pods which have the potential to reduce medic establishment costs by 60%. A cheaper method of harvesting and sowing medic pods is expected to result in increased medic dry matter production and increased benefit to subsequent grain crops.
