2010 Trial Results

The MacKillop Farm Management Group is pleased to present their trial results for 2010. 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 2010. The MacKillop Farm Management Group would like to sincerely thank all of those involved and acknowledge that without the support of these people the trial programme would not be possible.

 

The MacKillop Farm Management Group would also like to acknowledge the many hours that are put in by Trent Potter and the SARDI team at Struan; Jack Kay, Matthew Hosking, Ian Ludwig, Carolyn Hilton and Robert Stacey. The Group would like to thank them for their continued commitment to trials in our region.

 

Thanks must also be given to our sponsors and funding bodies, without them we could not undertake our extensive trial programme. Major funding bodies and trial sponsors include the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI), Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF through Caring for Our Country) and The South East NRM Board.
