Permanent Top Dressed Trial Field Day

Rutherglen DEPI 16 October

The Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) is hosting a field day and forum to celebrate the Permanent Top-Dressed (PTD) experiment, which was established at DEPI Rutherglen in 1914. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from scientists and field experts on what has been learnt over the past 100 years, and contribute to discussions on how this information can inform future directions.

The PTD experiment was established to identify the long term impact of phosphorus fertiliser application on pasture and animal production.

Key presenters will include Professor Tim Reeves and Professor Mike McLaughlin.

 Where: DEPI Rutherglen, 124 Chiltern Valley Rd

In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to see beautifully penned trial records and historic laboratory equipment in the heritage listed building at DEPI Rutherglen, the Sherry House.

Afternoon tea, BBQ dinner and drinks are included, therefore registration is essential.

 RSVP:  For more information or to register, please contact Eloise Seymour, DEPI Rutherglen Centre Leader, on (02) 6030 4509 or 0467 807 399 or email eloise.seymour@depi.vic.gov.au by Tuesday, October 2.
