Southern Pulse Extension Project

Latest News >>

 

The GRDC Southern Pulse Extension project, provides a collaborative opportunity to increase the knowledge of growers and advisers on sustainable pulse production, improving the Southern Region's capacity to maximise future growth and profitability opportunities. 

 

The three-year project will develop farmer discussion groups in areas where lentils and/or chickpeas are not commonly grown or low lentil/chickpea production areas. Prior experience in growing pulses is not required as the purpose of the group is to increase regional knowledge and capacity in pulse production.

 

Attendees do not need to have attended the previous meeting or have any prior knowledge in pulse production to attend.
The Post-Seeding meeting had an interactive session;

  • looking at a couple of paddocks (beans, lentils and clover/barley)
  • discussing strategy surrounding insects, weeds and disease, and the corresponding management
  • conducting plant counts to assess plants per sq meter compared to the optimal
  • digging up a few plants to measure seeding depth and assess plant nodulation
