2018 Oat Field Day

 

Summary of project and findings 

 

The 2018 MFMG Oat Field Day was held on Wednesday 1st August, 2018 at the Wolseley Recreation Centre, and then in the field at Peter McLellan’s. The day was made possible with funding assistance being kindly provided by SAGIT.

 

There were 37 in attendance. This included a mix of growers, agronomists and various industry representatives.

 

Keynote speaker was Georgie Troup, Oat Research Agronomist, Grains Research and Innovation Agriculture and Food, DPIRD, WA. Additional industry speakers also spoke on the day as well as Peter Cormack, Manager of Industry Development, SARDI. 

 

Key topics of discussion were around the management of individual varieties and the importance of variety specific agronomy packages. Responses of different varieties to time of sowing and nutrition and discussions around management for hay vs grain yields.

 

Opportunities arose to discuss marketing, with local millers Blue Lake Milling (BLM) in attendance. There were also discussions around the new variety Kowari and the plans to assess the grain quality locally through Blue Lake Milling (BLM) this season.

 

The field session included opportunities for growers to view the MFMG milling oat variety management trial that has been developed collaboratively with industry to try and optimise management in milling oats.
