Central West Farming Systems Inc.
‘Farmers Advancing Research’
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.
News & Events
Harvester Discussion Forums
Local growers and advisors are invited to join us for free half-day harvester forum to share their practices and learn from the experiences of others on harvest loss reduction, harvest weed seed control, and prevention of harvester fires.
The forums will be a facilitated event at a grower property, with presentations by industry experts to help drive the conversation and help growers get more grain in the bin and less on the ground.
Tapping a Natural Resource – A Rural and Regional ‘Remote’ Workforce
CWFS is excited to announce that we have been successful in the latest round of FRRR funding – Tackling Tough Times Together program. Our project ‘Tapping a Natural Resource – A Rural and Regional ‘Remote’ Workforce’ will help you build confidence and acquire skills to re-enter the workforce remotely.
