LOCAL farm businesses will be able to access interactive learning opportunities through a new AgChats platform that has been launched by the Liebe Group.
The AgChats series will focus on agronomic and business management topics for local farm businesses.
Utilising the Liebe Group’s Agricultural Research and Education Facility, monthly workshops will feature industry experts, as well as providing opportunities for local businesses to share their experiences.
The GrainGrowers group is supporting the rollout of the AgChats.
Western regional co-ordinator Alan Meldrum said GrainGrowers was always looking at ways to discuss progress farming applications with growers.
“GrainGrowers is always looking at ways to bring growers together to discuss progressive farming applications,” Mr Meldrum said.
“I know the AgChats will bring real value to growers.”
The February session will have senior chemists from CSBP and Nufarm Australia presenting on ‘Don’t get blocked up: tank mixing basics’.
They will be discussing agrochemicals and spray operations in farming businesses.
Local growers and Liebe Group members Jennifer and Daniel Birch said they were looking forward to the informative and diverse learning opportunities that AgChats will deliver.
The Liebe Group is a grower-driven, not-for-profit organisation that services more than 85 farming businesses within the Dalwallinu, Coorow, Perenjori and Wongan-Ballidu Shires, encompassing a land area of more than one million hectares.
