Improving the profitability & sustainability of Esperance port zone grain growers

IMG 9963

The Council of Grain Grower Organisations (COGGO) has funded SEPWA to put together a manual that encapsulates all that can go wrong at harvest. SEPWA will do this with the help of many grower groups from throughout the State along with technical support from the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA).

We as an industry need to make our business, our family and ourselves individually more resilient so that we can deal with the pressures that we can’t change immediately. We cannot afford to let those pressures get us down to the point where damage is being done to our productivity, our family life or our enjoyment of life.

Easier said than done sometimes.

This book as about recognising the things we can’t change at harvest (of which there are many) – and doing an audit of the things that can go wrong from one year to the next. We can arm ourselves with information so that when we do get hit by the problem, we can then do something about it.
