The workshop will include a barbecue lunch with the opportunity to have informal discussions with PIRSA crop specialists, NRM SE pest plant officers and MIND Australia representatives.Executive Director Rural Directions Chris Heinjus said though the current seasonal outlook was positive the price outlook was negative – and “the harvest isn’t in the bin yet”.

“There is a need to manage business risk over commodity price risk and cash flow is critical,” Mr Heinjus said.“Everyone has an opinion as to market values. However, it’s business viability that matters and simple ‘hold and hope’ strategies, while sounding attractive, may not be commercially viable.

“As well as the free workshop, Rural Directions will hold a more in-depth Grain Market Briefing at Wolseley on October 18 from 8.30 am -12pm for a limited number of participants. The cost for this session is $319 per property, with a maximum of two people per property.”

Acting Executive Director Rural Solutions SA Brett Bartel said after a few extremely difficult years it was fantastic to see the South East preparing for a good harvest.“But we’re also aware that the problems many farm businesses are facing don’t disappear with one good season and recovery will take some time,” Mr Bartel said.

“We are encouraging as many grain growers as possible to attend this free workshop – arming yourself with the right information will help in making the best decisions to maximise returns for this season – and hopefully help plan for future seasons as well.

“The State Government is continuing to support this region under the Drought Assistance Package for the Upper South East, including through the delivery of expert and specialist business advice for farm businesses to help them recover and become more resilient against future dry seasons.”

The Government of South Australia’s Upper South East Drought Package aims to complement the range of existing Australian and state government measures designed to underpin farm business and community preparedness and resilience.To register for the FREE BBQ lunch and afternoon session please contact PIRSA’s Mount Gambier office on 8735 1300 before October 13.
