The GRDC invests in the Grain Storage Extension Project to provide information and training for growers to use best practice for on-farm grain storage.
Ben White delivers on-farm workshops and training sessions in the western region. As an agricultural engineer Ben draws on his extensive industry experience as a researcher and editor of the Kondinin Group’s Farming Ahead magazine to complement his knowledge and experience in grain storage. Ben is a familiar face to many growers in the west and brings a fresh approach to best practices in on farm storage.
Private consultant Chris Warrick coordinates the national extension team and equips growers with the knowledge and tools to make informed, strategic decisions around on-farm grain storage. Working in the southern region of Australia, Chris draws on his years of experience working with the national extension team to present grain storage workshops on best management practices and the economics of expanding on-farm storage.
Sadly, our good friend and colleague Peter Botta passed away in 2018. He is dearly missed not only by his family and friends but by everyone he worked with and the broader, Australian grains industry. Peter’s work and legacy will live on.
