Dookie

Site Introduction

Our Dookie Innovation Site sits at the base of Major mountain in the paddocks of Dookie Agricultural College, A short distance from Greater Shepparton. Dookie is one of our key sites this year where we will look at herbicides Voraxor and Luximax tested in wheat plots alongside the industry standards, as well as Frequency post emergent herbicide in both wheat and barley. We’ll also showcase our latest high performing canola varieties including new LibertyLink trait technology, designed to offer extra in-crop flexibility for canola growers whilst reducing annual ryegrass resistance pressure.
