Four years since its inception, Gippsland Agricultural Group (GAgG) has planted seeds in the minds of thousands of farmers across Central and East Gippsland.
Running field days, workshops and ute drives, estimated at more than 50 events throughout the year, has allowed farmers from Benambra to Giffard and further, to gain information and different ideas.
Next week the group will host its annual results dinner, which encompasses all the field work at the Gippsland Research Farm on Bengworden Road, as well as the ‘satellite farms’ around the district operating various demonstrations in conjunction with GAgG.
GAgG chief executive officer, Trevor Caithness, said over the four years the group had managed to secure $2.6 million in grants for trial and research work.
“It’s a substantial amount of money,” Trevor said.
