Imtrader Ed.14 – GRDC Innovation Funding Announced

Healthy on left, Frost damage on Right

On September 11 2018, the GRDC announced it had awarded Imtrade Australia with funding to develop a chemical treatment to protect crops from frost damage.

The funding will allow Imtrade to expand our field trial work on a product we’ve had in lab trials for the last couple of seasons.

Frost has proven to be a formidable adversary to growers nationally and this research aims to deliver another tool to assist in reducing the impact from frost damage in broadacre crops.

With our 2019 field trial planning well under way, our R&D team will have a busy year ahead.
