Central West Farming Systems (CWFS) is an independent, not-for-profit, farmer driven organisation. We operate in an area covering 14 million hectares in Central Western NSW. Formed in 1998, the group now boasts over 300 members made up of farmers, private and public sector advisers, researchers and stakeholders.
As well as our research driven trials and extension, CWFS is involved in a broad range of activities and partnerships to benefit growers, industry and our regional communities. Snapshot is an overview of recent workshops and events, key points from trials and other relevant topics of interest.
NB: Upcoming events are listed in the Calendar. Our yearly compendiums with all trial results are in Resources – Member’s section. New trial results and compendiums are only able to be accessed by members for six months, when they are then made public.
