2009 Trial Results

The MacKillop Farm Management Group is pleased to present their trial results for 2009. They hope that you will refer to this publication and trust you find this information valuable.

 

A large number of farmers and research and technical officers have been involved in the trial programme in
2009. The MacKillop Farm Management Group would like to thank all those involved and acknowledge
that without the support of these people the trial programme would not be possible.

 

The MacKillop group wish to sincerely thank the host farmers who provided land on which this years’ trials
were conducted. They were Ross & Helen Lutt – Wirrega, Roger & Sue Groocock – Wirrega, Martin and
Kirsty Flower and Nick Thring – Frances, Hartley Hocking and family – Conmurra, John Cooper – Bool
Lagoon, Struan & Kybybolite, Bruce & Angela McLean and Jack and Erica Kay – Bool Lagoon and James
& Chris Gilbertson – Hatherleigh.

 

Thank you also must be given to our sponsors, without them we could not undertake our extensive trial
programme. Our major sponsors include the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), the
South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI), Planttech and National Bank Australia.

 

The MacKillop Farm Management Group would like to acknowledge the many hours that Trent Potter
spends collecting, reviewing and collating data to ensure that this publication contains as much relevant
information as possible. We thank Trent and his SARDI team at Struan – Jack Kay, Matthew Hosking, Ian
Ludwig, Carolyn Hilton and Robert Stacey – for their continued commitment to trials in our region.
