Broadacre cropping in the Territory
The NT Department of Primary Industry and Resources will host a webinar session to provide an update of the CRCNA's Potential for broadacre cropping in the NT project.
Each of the project participants brings unique expertise to develop crop management strategies that will help to de-risk broadacre agriculture in the Top End. This project will initially focus on rain-fed and irrigated systems growing cotton and peanut crop. Maize, sorghum, rice and pulse crops will also be investigated as possible 'break-crop' options for cotton and peanut producers. A mixture of on-field and simulation techniques will be used throughout this project.
