The best kind of advertorial! Congratulations Joe Fleming, Parraweena Pastoral Coy and Pacific Seeds!
2017’s Premer Shield has been awarded to Willow Tree property Parraweena for a crop of MR-Scorpio sorghum, grown on a commercial scale for the first time.
The award was one of several presented at the annual Premer Field Day, which is run by the Premer branch of the NSW Farmers’ Association and Field Day Committee, and recognises and rewards the efforts of growers in the district.
Joe Fleming, who manages the 4,452 hectare dryland grain growing property for Parraweena Pastoral Company, grew the prize winning 8 t/ha crop.
He said the 2016-17 sorghum program was split across three varieties, with MR-Scorpio included for top-end yield potential
