Jeremy Curry

My role in the department

Jeremy is a Research Officer within the DPIRD/GRDC co-funded project, ‘Tactical wheat agronomy for the West’ (DAW00249), and the muti-agency (DPIRD/FAR/CSIRO/GRDC) project, ‘Optimising high rainfall zone cropping for profit in the Western and Southern Regions’ (DAW1903-008RMX). He conducts research trials in the Esperance region. Focus areas have included understanding the susceptibility of current wheat varieties to pre-harvest sprouting, agronomic management of wheat and barley cultivars including optimising sowing date, nitrogen timing and variety choice to minimise risk. Jeremy’s research is highly relevant to issues prevalent on the south coast (such as staining, head loss and sprouting).
