What should you be thinking about for crop nutrition in 2018? The 2017 cropping season has been a mixed bag across Australia’s grain growing regions. There are some poor crops and some very good crops. For advisors, site-specific thinking could be even more important than usual next year.
Join ExtensionAUS for a webinar to discuss approaches for next year.
