Managing crown rot on upper EP – a joint learning experience
Project activities will build on knowledge gained from prior research on Upper EP using trials and complementary grower-sown demonstrations with the objectives being to:
1. Reduce yield losses due to crown rot, so increasing the amount and consistency of grain quantities available for export.
2. Improve the consistency of cereal grain production and the profitability of cereal enterprises on UEP.
3. Increase adoption of existing (used in conventional and novel ways) and novel options for managing crown rot.
4. Improve the ability of farmers and advisors (and researchers) to understand trials and demonstrations and how to interpret the results for application and implementation in local farming systems.
