GRAIN growers who this year cut moisture-stressed and frost-affected crops for hay and silage are advised to record their crop management strategies and the outcomes for benchmarking purposes.

Record keeping (notes, photographs and videos) will form an important resource for growers in coming years, should they be required to again cut crops in response to seasonal conditions.
