Farmer

Description

Farmers (more commonly referred to as ‘growers’ in the grain industry) are the heart and soul of the industry, as ultimately they produce the crops. From planting seeds through to harvesting crops, growers typically perform or oversee each and every job in between, including operation and maintenance of vehicles and machinery, application of fertilisers, business administration, and much, much more.
