MORE than 80 agronomists, researchers, scientists and other industry professionals attended the annual Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) Grain Industry Day at Optus Stadium last Tuesday.
The forum, which was held for the first time last year, provided updated information on pests, weeds and diseases, as well as how WA's main three crops - wheat, barley and canola - fared in a wet year.
It also gave DPIRD the chance to update those in attendance on some of the major projects it had been working on this year.
The full day event was packed with information and ended with a sundowner, giving everyone the opportunity to catch up before Christmas.
