GRDC senior regional manager - west, Peter Bird, said the event will be held at Crown Perth on 22 and 23 February.
"More than 600 people attended the 2020 event, which showcases the latest research, technology, market development and management innovations to improve the productivity and profitability of the grains industry.
"The GRDC Grains Research Update, Perth, is an important forum for growers, advisors, researchers and industry service providers to connect and share insights and knowledge to help further the State's thriving export-focused grain industry, worth more than $6 billion per annum," Bird said.
GRDC Western Region Panel chair Darrin Lee said information presented at the Update will range from research information to underpin improved agronomic practices for increased profitability on-farm, through to broader insights on big picture trends and issues impacting the industry overall.
More than 50 concurrent sessions will be held over the two days on important issues impacting on grower profitability - ranging from ‘big picture to market focus', crop protection and varieties, through to soils and nutrition, heat and drought tolerance, agronomy and farming systems.
The GRDC Grains Research Update, Perth, will be followed by four one-day GRDC Grains Research Update events in the Albany port zone at Albany (3 March), the Kwinana East Zone at Merredin (12 March), the Geraldton Zone at Geraldton (17 March) and the Esperance zone (July - date to be confirmed).
