GrowNotes are your one-stop shop for regional trial results and best practice recommendations. Presented as an online flip-book, each set of GrowNotes provides an overview of the crop and a range of farm practice reference notes, and backs them up with trial results and best-practice recommendations, so you can make informed farm management decisions about your crop.
