The third edition of Grain Producer was jam-packed with features, including a cover story on the important and ever-increasing role women are playing in agriculture.

Feature stories include:

  • Getting into grain production … how I started: Grain Producer profiles two South Australian grain growers, how they got started in the industry and what it is about farming that keeps them involved year-in, year-out.
  • Food producers are … GROWING SA: The state’s grain and livestock industries joined together in August 2017 to celebrate a stellar 12 months of production with a new industry event, the GROWING SA 2017 Conference.
  • Technology in agriculture: Lucindale farmer Lachlan Seears recently won the 2017 Kondinin Group Award for Excellence in Technology. He outlines how he makes decisions to invest in new technology on-farm.
  • Ray of hope for kind finish as ‘mixed bag’ season unfolds: AFTER last year’s record breaking 11.1 million tonne grain harvest, it was almost a certainty that this year’s haul was going to be lower. However, no one would have predicted the ‘mixed bag’ facing grain producers across South Australia this season.
  • Developing leadership skills key to building women on farms: South Australian women in agriculture are rewriting the story of the traditional masculine farmer on the land as a new generation of female farmers is encouraged to take pride in their occupation.

Grain Producer is available as an online book, which can also be downloaded or printed.
