Wagga Wagga, NSW

Site Introduction

Our Wagga Wagga (Yathella) Innovation Site sits alongside the Murrumbidgee River, just under 170kms from Canberra. Wagga Wagga (Yathella) 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. 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.
