Soils Conservation and Farm Resilience in Horticulture Workshop
Practical hands-on field day for all Horticulture growers
Are you a horticulture grower in Central Queensland? Join Growcom and Fitzroy Basin Association at Rossmoya for an innovative, practical field day on advanced soil conservation and farm resilience practices in June.
