This investment proposes a series of interactive harvester set-up days located across Western (30), Southern (24) and Northern (30) regions to service growers at subregion level. Event delivery and duration will vary for each region. This three-year investment will inform growers, harvest contractors, advisors and machinery resellers on harvester set-up and front to back grain quality/ losses through an interactive program with the aim to maximise harvest efficiency and optimise grain losses including the integration of effective harvest weed seed control. Information will be practical and delivered using a range of local grower’s machinery. Development of extension materials and evaluation of the grower & contractor practice change as a result of attending will be incorporated into this investment and will include the development of case studies and video content. Applicants can apply for delivery in one or multiple regions.

Western – thirty (30) interactive expo days to be delivered over 3 years (10 per annum)

Southern – twenty-four (24) interactive expo days to be delivered over 3 years (8 per annum)

Northern – up to a total of thirty (30) interactive expo days to be delivered over 3 years (up to 10 per annum, seasonally dependent)

The interactive harvester set-up day activities are to be coordinated nationally but designed and delivered strategically for each region. One investment across all three regions or three separate investments, one per region, will be considered. If three separate investments are proposed, applicants will need to outline a mechanism to ensure collaboration across the regions.
