The Walyoo aggregation is located near the township of Dandaragan in the Northern Wheatbelt region North of Perth, WA. This area is well suited to the production of grains and oilseeds and the aggregation’s annual average rainfall is approximately 610mm.

Historically, the aggregation has been operated as a cropping enterprise. The Walyoo aggregation is farmed in a sustainable rotation that includes the production of wheat, barley, canola and lupins.

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