Industry Networks

Cotton is more than just a crop for Ravensworth Agriculture – it's our pride. Historically, cotton production has been the cornerstone of our farming operations, making significant financial contributions across both our properties. Our dedication and meticulous farming practices have positioned us among the elite in the Riverina cotton production landscape. A testament to our commitment to excellence is our recent accolade – the prestigious 'Cotton Grower of the Year' at the Southern Valley Cotton Growers Associated Australia Awards. This recognition not only celebrates our past successes but motivates us to reach new heights.

A Legacy of Excellence

Water management, especially in the realm of agriculture, is a delicate balance between meeting the needs of the present and preserving for the future. At Ravensworth Agriculture, we recognise this intricate balance and have woven it into the very fabric of our operations. Employing a myriad of water management strategies ensures that our cotton crops have a consistent and uninterrupted water supply, allowing us to plan our cultivation cycles with precision. Beyond mere sourcing, our supplementary licenses play a pivotal role in our water strategy. These licenses, combined with our substantial on-farm storage facilities, enable efficient capture and utilisation of water during supplementary flow allocations. It’s not just about having water; it’s about using it wisely. By optimising every drop, we ensure that our cotton flourishes while still respecting and conserving our most precious resource.
