The day will begin with a presentation by Steve Powell from Market Check on developing marketing plans geared to irrigated crops," Mr Shannon said. ".. Hanwen Wu from DPI NSW will provide some insights into the increasing problem of windmill grass and fleabane weed, and Geoff Raymond from Nufarm will look at the herbicide options available for control of these weeds," Mr Shannon said. ".. Other topics will include the pros and cons of growing cotton in southern NSW, forage brassicas as a new irrigated grazing option, pasture renovation, and a flour miller's perspective on milling wheats." Mr Shannon encouraged local grain growers to set aside the day to attend the Update which is supported by the Irrigated Cropping Council. "..
