Grains Research Foundation Ltd Update November 2014

#From1Grain tour group with Mike Henson, Ropesville, Texas.


Welcome to the GRFL Newsletter!

Welcome to the first edition of the GRFL Newsletter.  At this stage the newsletter will be sent out every month. 

Included in the newsletter will be details of upcoming industry events, RAC updates, what's been happening with GRF and latest blog posts, just to name a few items.

GRFL are now on Twitter and Facebook.  Why not pop over & say hi.  If you don't use these communication platforms then come & have a look.  It is a great way to keep in touch with others & to keep informed on issues affecting your industry.

I also ask you to consider joining me as a contributor to the GRFL Blog.  If you are involved in a grain farming enterprise or are involved in R,D & E in the grains industry and are willing to be involved on an irregular basis (possibly once every second month) then I'd love to hear from you.  Let us share what has been happening in your part of the world.

Research Advisory Committees in 2015

We had a great first round of RAC meetings in 2014.  I really enjoyed getting out and meeting those of you who were able to attend and hearing about the issues that are important to you.

Thanks to the successful #From1Grain Tour & all the work involved in getting 12 grain growers and 1 agronomist to and from Texas, the second round of meetings was unfortunately cancelled.

To make up for this, in March 2015 we will be holding an All-In-One RAC meeting.  We have tentatively set the date for Friday 27th March in Brisbane.  The second round of meetings will be held following the 2015 US tour, possibly in late August. 

To be eligible for the 2015 your attendance at the March meeting is encouraged.  Those who attended the 2014 tour are also encouraged to attend this meeting to share what they learnt whilst on tour with other attendees.

We will share more information with you by mid January.

Thank you & I look forward to hearing from you all soon.
