Central West Farming Systems (CWFS) is an independent, not-for-profit, farmer driven organisation. We operate in an area covering 14 million hectares in the lower rainfall, mixed farming regions of Central Western NSW (350-500mm rainfall). Formed in 1998, the group now boasts over 300 members made up primarily of farmers but also private and public sector advisers, researchers and stakeholders.
As well as our research driven trials and extension, CWFS are involved in a broad range of activities and partnerships to benefit growers, industry and our regional communities in Central Western NSW. Trial results are accessible to members only for six months before wider publication. Upcoming events are listed in our Events section. Snapshot is a quick overview of some of the above, key points from trials and other topics of interest.
