Grains Research & Development Corporation (GRDC): Practical & applied workshops & communications to promote key messages and resources to maximise the effectiveness of spray applications in the Southern Region

In February 2017, the GRDC launched the Spray Application GrowNotes™ manual which includes practical information and videos on sprayer set-up, new tools for determining sprayer output, advice for assessing spray coverage in the field, improving droplet capture by the target, drift-reducing equipment and techniques, the effects of adjuvant and nozzle type on drift potential, and surface temperature inversion research.

The GRDC seeks to develop strategically timed, impactful and targeted communications to remind growers, advisors and spray operators of the risk of off-target impacts and importance of implementation of strategies that maximise the efficacy, safety and return of crop protection spend and promote relevant resources including the GRDC Spray Application GrowNotes™ manual and other useful resources.


A budget of up to $250,000 is indicated for this investment dependent upon the quality of the application, expected outcomes and the ability to leverage GRDC funds through additional in-kind and cash co-contribution.

This proposed investment would be undertaken over a two-year period from 1 March 2018 to 31 December 2019.
