Out and about

We have been busy over the last couple of months at Katherine Research Station. Dry season field trial harvest has started (headers always bring the rain!) Quinoa and hemp trials are finished and the chickpea trial is not far away. Cassava forage harvest has occurred and a larger area has been sown with the hope of using the material for feed evaluation.
