Southern Pulse Agronomy

Southern Pulse Agronomy (SPA) has been a tri-state research program led by Agriculture Victoria Senior Research Agronomist, Dr Jason Brand, with funding from GRDC, DEDJTR-Vic, SARDI and NSW DPI that aims to increase farm profitability, reliability and profitability of pulses in southern Australia.

SPA continues to deliver the latest information on new pulse varieties and their integration with the latest farming systems. Key learnings from the SPA program also provide advice to breeding programs on how latest farm management practices may influence breeding needs for the future.
