Record breaking field walk for Liebe Group

Both local farmers and industry representatives alike flocked to the recent Liebe Group Post Seeding Field Walk that was held at the Main Trial Site in Latham on Wednesday 22nd July.


The record-breaking number of attendees reached a staggering 109 people, comprised of many well-established growers in the region, as well as a number of young farmers who were looking forward to building their agricultural knowledge, and many industry representatives.


Thanks are extended out to all of Liebe Group’s Diamond Partners CBH Group, CSBP, Rabobank and RSM, with many of their organisations having representatives attend the day, highlighting its importance and value for the local farming community.


Liebe Group Silver Partner FMC came on board as this year’s event sponsor, providing further support to ensure the event was able to fulfill all expectations.


Sunny skies and warm weather provoked smiles from the crowd, as participants walked in spaced-out groups around the site to view 12 of the 17 trials in the program. Presenters were able to provide a quick overview of the trial aims, objectives and any observed results, with most trials still in their early stages.


Several of the trials highlighted on the day provided growers with the opportunity to see new herbicide chemistries that may find great use for issue weeds commonly found in the region.


The 2021 Main Trial Site host Matthew Hyde said "it was interesting to see the new lupin herbicide options entering the market. Hopefully they will allow lupins to become a more successful break crop with higher profitability and better weed control".

The current trial site host farmer Dylan Hirsch reflected on the day, saying that he “really enjoyed

hosting the Main Trial Site and having the trials on his own farm and soil, and that it was a very positive day with a great turn out.”


Coorow grower Daniel Birch described the day as “a great opportunity to get back out and about to see and hear current R&D trials for our area and discuss all areas of farming with other growers and industry reps.”








Liebe Group members Peter and Laura Bryant said “It was a fantastic day to see the ever changing technology and research available to us as growers. It was great to see so many people attend the field walk and we are excited to see what the site will be like come spring.”


The formalities of the day concluded with a social evening at the Latham Golf Club with a bbq and drinks, which allowed participants to discuss the day, share their outlooks on trials, and attitudes moving forward in the current growing season. It was a terrific way to end the day, and the club provided a chirpy and inclusive atmosphere, and space for community members, and wider, to catch up.


The Liebe Group would like to thank Dylan Hirsch for hosting the 2020 Main Trial Site, and look forward to seeing the farming community back together again at the Spring Field Day on 10th September.
