Lawson operates the Grassmere aggregation as a cropping only enterprise. The aggregation is farmed in a sustainable rotation that will include production of wheat, barley and canola.

Lawson aims to optimise production and sustainability by utilising controlled traffic and zero tillage farming techniques. This allows the retention of stubble and along with the use of variable rate technology for the application of fertiliser and soil ameliorants will build soil health and optimise productivity through increasing the long term water use efficiency of the crops.

The Grassmere aggregation is led by our Farm Manager Ben, along with a team of permanent staff, and during peak periods including seeding and harvesting, they will be assisted by casual staff.
