In line with other North Coast local government areas, the Richmond Valley visitor economy has been growing incrementally over the past five years. Tourism is estimated to contribute $78 million direct visitor expenditure to the Richmond Valley visitor economy per year. Domestic daytrips account for 59 percent of visitors to the region and domestic overnight visitors account for 40 percent of visitors.

Increasing direct visitor expenditure and overnight visitation is, therefore, important to growing the area’s visitor economy.

Richmond Valley Council’s Director Community Service Delivery Angela Jones said the visitor guide was a “must have” for visitors.

“Our goal with the new Discover Richmond Valley Visitor Guide is to provide visitors with an authentic experience which goes beyond the traditional tourist trail,” Ms Jones said.

“We want visitors to feel like locals, uncovering the hidden gems and secret spots which make our beautiful Valley so special.”

Teenager in Custody After Alleged Church Stabbing Incident – Wakeley

A teenager is currently in police custody following an alleged stabbing incident at a church in Wakeley, located in Sydney’s south-west. The unsettling event unfolded around 7:10 PM on Monday, April 15, 2024, prompting a swift response from law enforcement.

Upon arrival at the church on Welcome Street, Fairfield City Police Area Command officers discovered a 53-year-old man with head lacerations and a 39-year-old man, who sustained lacerations and a shoulder injury while attempting to intervene. Both victims received prompt medical attention from NSW Ambulance paramedics and were subsequently transported to Liverpool Hospital with injuries assessed as non-life-threatening.

The alleged assailant, a 15-year-old boy who had been restrained by members of the public, was apprehended by police at the scene. However, the situation escalated as a large crowd gathered outside the church, prompting additional police units from across the Metropolitan Region, including specialized teams, to respond.

In the ensuing public disorder, officers faced a barrage of projectiles, resulting in injuries to several law enforcement personnel, damage to police vehicles, and theft of property. The 15-year-old suspect, who sustained injuries during the incident, was promptly taken to the hospital under police guard and has undergone surgery for his wounds.
In response to the severity of the incident, Fairfield City Police Area Command has initiated Strike Force Petrina to investigate the stabbing, while Strike Force Dribs has been tasked with probing the public disorder and identifying the perpetrators involved.

As the investigations progress, authorities urge anyone with relevant information, including witnesses or individuals in possession of mobile phone footage, to come forward and assist law enforcement. They can provide information anonymously to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or directly contact the police.

2024 Winter crop variety sowing guide available now

The latest edition of the NSW Winter Crop Variety Sowing Guide is available online and in hard copy to help grain growers and their advisers make the best cropping decisions to achieve more productive and profitable winter crops in 2024.

Peter Matthews, NSW DPI’s Technical Specialist Grain Services, said the annual guide provides growers with new variety and technical information based on the latest research and development results from departmental and industry programs.

“This year, 10 new spring wheat varieties are available, as well as two longer season wheats suited to NSW higher rainfall production zones, and a specialist hay wheat suitable for northern NSW.
“There are also new varieties of barley, canola, field pea and lentil available,” Mr Matthews said.

“When considering a new variety, compare the yield, grain quality and disease resistance of the new variety with currently grown varieties.
“In regard to disease, stripe rust continues to be a major concern for wheat growers, with many commonly grown varieties susceptible to the main stripe rust pathotypes in NSW.
“Growers and agronomists are urged to check current resistance ratings, develop a stripe rust management plan, and actively monitor crops throughout the season for signs of any rust species.
“Conditions were ideal for wide-spread septoria tritici blotch (STB) infection during the early part of 2023 in southern and central NSW, however the drier 2023 spring conditions across large parts of NSW were not favourable for STB build up, limiting crop infection.

“The disease is carried over on wheat stubble for a minimum of two years, so avoid sowing wheat-on-wheat, choose varieties with good STB resistance, consider stubble management practices, fungicide seed dressings, and foliar fungicides to protect this year’s crop.

“Fusarium crown rot (FCR) was widely detected across NSW in 2023 wheat crops, with the dry spring conditions increasing yield losses to the disease, so growers are urged to test paddocks for FCR inoculum levels before sowing.

Mr Matthews emphasised that profitable yields result not only from informed variety selection, but also from good management.
“To reach their full potential, varieties must be grown in a rotation that minimises the risks from diseases and weeds and maximises soil fertility and soil moisture storage.
“Therefore, sow at least two different varieties each year to spread the risk of frost and disease damage.

“With the continuing patchy rainfall across NSW, growers should be prepared to sow when the opportunity came. Sowing towards the earliest part of the recommended planting window, usually results in higher yields,” said Mr Matthews.

The Winter Crop Variety Sowing Guide includes data from the National Variety Trials, the Grains and Research Development Corporation’s program which undertakes comparative crop variety testing with standardised trial management, providing varietal information and comparisons on a regional scale.

The NSW Winter Crop Variety Sowing Guide is available on the NSW DPI website at https://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/agriculture/broadacre-crops/guides/publications/nsw-winter-crop-variety-sowing-guide and hard copies are available at local agribusiness stores, Local Land Services and NSW DPI offices.
