IREC Rice R and D 2016 Farmers' Newsletter

THIS edition marks a momentous point in the history of the IREC Farmers’ Newsletter. This edition is the very first to be published in a digital format. The Farmers’ Newsletter has been a prominent publication for irrigators of the southern Murray–Darling Basin since the 1940s, keeping them up to date with new research and cutting-edge technology.

IREC believes that going digital will open the Farmers’ Newsletter to a wider audience, particularly younger farmers. This complements IREC’s move to a range of digital information services, such as bimonthly email updates, YouTube clips, and podcasts; and it will enable greater interaction between IREC and irrigators through Twitter and Facebook. Supplying the Farmers’ Newsletter in digital format will enable the ow of real-time information, which will bene t all our members.

IREC would appreciate your feedback on the new digital format and welcomes your thoughts and constructive critique.
