Farm profile

The farm produces cotton and is located just outside St George, approximately 500km west of Brisbane.

Two pumping stations, with two electric pumps each, transfer water around the farm for flood irrigation all year round. A dam is maintained on-site for water supply, and a series of reticulation channels transports water around the farm.
