2017 Hyper Yielding Cereals Event

For the second year running, a highly successful field day has been held at the Hyper Yielding Cereals Site in Tasmaina.

More than 150 farmers and advisers attended the Grains Research and Development Corporation’s “Hyper Yielding Cereals Project” second annual field day which showcased the research site of some 800 experimental plots dedicated to improving the ability of the State’s farmers to grow high quality feed wheat and barley.

Led by FAR Australia, the project has already set new benchmarks for the yield performance of feed wheats in Tasmania and continues to stir interest among the State’s farming fraternity.

The field day boasted a line up of national and international speakers with keynote speaker Eric Watson, the current world record holder with a 16.79t/ha wheat crop discussing the key ingredients and the work that goes on behind the scenes for a world record attempt.
