Webinar: Optimising Plantain Production

Location: Webinar, New Zealand

Date: 12/08/2021

Time: 4:00 PM-5:00 PM

Please join us for a webinar presentation by Glenn Judson and Allister Moorhead of Agricom.

During this presentation, Glenn and Allister will cover the following topics:

1. How to best optimise plantain production within a farm system looking at:

  • Growth profiles of different types of plantain cultivars and what works best for different farm systems
  • Farm management practices in optimising the performance of plantain (e.g. decisions to consider with different seed mixes, how to increase the longevity and persistence of plantain, and how to improve animal performance on plantain).

2. What are the key characteristics of plantain in reducing N losses from the farm system

3. How plantain is being captured within the Overseer in offsetting N losses, and assessing levels required to make a discernible difference in the model.

4. Understanding the science involved in testing the efficacy of Ecotain and other plantain cultivars in assessing environmental benefits
