The Imtrader Ed.7 – Supporting GRDC Crop Updates Perth

Thank you to everyone who visited us at our stand. Here is a look at how the day went.
Imtrade Australia recently sponsored the 2017 GRDC Research Updates in Perth, with Andrew Alexander (National Sales Manager) and Michael Macpherson (National Technical Manager) in attendance. The event attracted a record number of attendees, with over 650 people representing the Industry, Research and Primary Production sectors. Michael at GRDC conference 2017The plenary sessions were informative and thought provoking, particularly in regards to the Grains, Pulse and Oilseeds markets globally, and how West Australian primary production contributes. Peter Roberts, Chairman of the GRDC Western panel noted that Western Australia produced 18 million tonnes of grain in 2016 which contributed $5 billion of exports into the West Australian economy. Considering the climatic events which occurred throughout the state last season, that is a top effort!

Rolling sessions covered off on the latest research in Diseases, Weed Management, Crop Nutrition, Frost and Technology, with lots of excellent information tendered.

Andrew and Michael would like to thank everyone who popped into the Imtrade booth for a chat throughout the conference and we hope to see you again in 2018.
