The National Cotton Grower of the Year Field Day is set to attract large numbers of cotton growers and industry representatives from across NSW and Queensland to Hillston.
The field day – on March 12– will be hosted by Tim and Sally Watson (Sunland Agriculture), recipients of 2014 Monsanto Cotton Grower of the Year Award.
Cotton Australia regional manager for the Riverina, Honi Anderson, saidthe Watsons have been growing cotton in the Riverina for 14 years, and have been recognised for their innovative cotton growing techniques.
“Tim and Sally Watson are achieving outstanding results – and they are not confined by conventional thinking,” Ms Anderson says.
“In the average season, the Watsons grow more than 1100 hectares of irrigated cotton. The 2013/14 crop yields of 12.8 bales per hectare were recorded at Sunland Agriculture, 25 per centhigher than Australia’s already world-leading cotton yield averages.”
“This event gives growers a chance to see first-hand a current model of best practice and take a great deal of knowledge back to their own farm.”
“The field day committee is in the process of finalising the list of speakers and presenters, which will be distributed in the coming weeks,” Ms Anderson says.
The event will run from 10am to4pm, atSunland Agriculture, River Road, Hillston.
