WPCLN Sustainable Farming Discussion Group – cover crops with Jade Killoran
September 21, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
All farmers are invited to our next WPCLN Sustainable Farming discussion group with Jade Killoran.
Jade is the founder of ‘Healthy Farming Systems’ and is an independent cover crop advisor and researcher, helping farmers trial, adopt, and manage multispecies cover crops on-farm.
Jade completed a Bachelor of Agricultural Science in 2013 focusing her Honours year on multispecies cover cropping in the Victorian high rainfall zone. After graduating, Jade worked for Southern Farming Systems as a research and extension officer and at AGF Seeds as a cover cropping researcher and sales manager.
Jade has a strong background in paddock scale research and is extremely passionate about cover crops. She likes nothing better than to be out and about on-farm, helping farmers and evaluating the success of cover crop adoption on farming systems. Jade will talk about some of the covercrop trials she is involved in monitoring throughout Victoria on beef and dairy farms.
There will be plenty of time for questions and answers.
Due to current restrictions we will be meeting via Zoom. Contact Peter for Zoom link.
