THE dry winter won’t be stopping the Junee Show’s cropping competition with entries expected from across the district for judging.
The team behind the competition has been working hard to pull it together for 2018 after it looked like there might be a time it would fall over due to a lack of crops.
However, in a sure sign of the innovation and tenacity farmers are renowned for, even during drought, there is interest in producing entries.
Because it has been such a difficult season, the competition will be used as a learning experience, particularly in terms of of drought management practices.
The judges are aiming for 10 growers who will hopefully provide examples of their canola, wheat and barley crops, as well as potentially pulses.
Entries will close on Monday, October 29, with judging scheduled to take place on October 31.
