We thank the farmers, service providers, machinery dealers of EGPs for their co-operation and inputs in implementing on-farm trials. A tremendous progress has been made in achieving milestones/outputs set in the proposal. This level of achievements would not have been possible without collaborators and other stakeholders dedicated supports. Thanks, are also due to Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) and the Department of Foreign Affair and Trade (DFAT) for the support of CASI technology development and delivery in the EGPs.
