Sunlight over the Sugarcane farm

Our primary producers are amongst some of the most progressive and innovative in the world. Tropical agriculture is very different to the familar traditions of temperate regions.  Our growers contributed a gross value of production (GVP) of over $404 million to the Tablelands economy for the 2010/11 financial year. Tree crop industries, valued at $220 million, are the largest component of the Tablelands agriculture sector. Field crops ($90 million), animal industries ($79 million) and lifestyle horticulture ($15 million) also contributed significantly to the local economy. (TRC report)

Northern Gulf Resource Management Group’s projects and activities are aimed at supporting innovation and best practice in the sector. We deliver projects across the entire region, and we also have a range of on-farm services that we provide under a commercial-in-confidence arrangement to meet specific grower aspirations.
