NGN – Frost Management Workshops and Field Days

This project aims to build knowledge informing grower and advisor decisions relative to current seasonal events. A priority is supporting and engaging with growers inexperienced with frost and underprepared to manage effects on their profitability.

A GRDC project investment, GGA will co-ordinate delivery of activities in collaboration with, DPIRD and consultants to extend outcomes of previous frost R&D investments plus further develop knowledge around decisions relative to current seasonal events.
