THE agricultural industry will get the opportunity to inspect Australia’s longest running annual cropping systems experiment at a crop walk at Longerenong College next month.
The Longerenong Rotation No.1 trial, better known as LR1, was established in 1916, making 2017 the 102nd year the trial has been investigating the suitability of cropping rotations on soil fertility in the Wimmera.
Officially opening the event will be Victorian Farmers Federation president David Jochinke, who will commemorate the centenary of the LR1 trial.
Along with the LR1 trial, the Sustainable Cropping Rotations in Mediterranean Environments (SCRIME) trial will also be open to the public on the day.
