Communicating research findings back to industry

The annual mungbean field day at Hermitage Research Facility is a key event in the Australian Mungbean Association calendar. This year, the event drew an impressive crowd and the researcher presentations were engaging and thought-provoking.

Below are links to various handouts from some of the presenters.

One of the highlights of the day was inspecting a demonstration plot showing the history of mungbean plant breeding in Australia, right up to some exciting pre-release varieties.

The AMA appreciates the investment of funds, time and commitment made for the benefit of the Australian mungbean industry.
