CGS Summer Crop Seminars


CGS will be holding a series of Summer Crop Option seminars across the Namoi Valley to ensure growers have all the crop information required for the coming season.

We are putting a proactive spin on the dry period and getting ready for when the drought breaks. It will rain and growers need to make sure they are prepared for when it does.

With 2018/19 season cotton bids currently well over $600 per bale it is a very appealing option for dryland production, and demand for sorghum is also very high.

We are aiming to ensure growers are able to take full advantage when it rains and give their summer crops the best start possible with the base nutrition requirements fulfilled, as well as have all grower industry requirements completed. Depending on when the weather break occurs, having flexibility to switch between rotational options will be crucial and as there is minimal winter crop planted, the area available for summer crop has also increased.

These seminars will include expert talks from local growers and consultants, Bayer, Cotton Seed Distributors, Incitec Pivot Fertilisers, Priag Marketing, CGS and Cotton Australia. Bayer will also be conducting an accreditation for Bollgard 3 which is a requirement for growing cotton.

There will also be pop-up-stalls including Pioneer, Pacific Seeds, Heritage Seeds, Agronomeye, Farmers Edge, Syngenta, Bayer, Farm Service Manager and the Rural Health Network.

  • 24/09/2018 Junction City Hotel, Burren Junction.
  • 25/09/2018 Bellata Golf Club, Bellata.
