Australian grains research a mouse-click away after the launch of the Northern Grower Alliance website
August 11, 2010
Grain growers across northern NSW and southern Queensland can now access the latest research information with a click of the mouse after the launch of the Northern Grower Alliance (NGA) website (www.nga.org.au).
The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)-supported projects run by the NGA have forged a strong reputation for ground-truthing grains research on a regional basis since their commencement in 2005.
Richard Daniel, NGA chief executive officer said the website would allow growers and advisers to download individual research publications or annual compilations such as the NGA Validator and keep up to date with current project events.
NGA is currently focused on five regions: Goondiwindi, Moree/Narrabri, Walgett, Liverpool Plains and Gilgandra/Gulargambone.
In each node a local consultative committee (LCC) has been established, made up from key local advisers, growers and agency extension officers.
Mr Daniel said the LCC’s role is to identify and prioritise specific agronomic production issues but they are also a key component of communication or extension activity.
He said NGA’s role is to rapidly develop and progress projects in response to the key industry issues.
