The Wongan aggregation is located adjacent to the township of Wongan Hills in WA’s Northern Wheatbelt region, north of Perth.
Wongan was purchased in 2014 and the scale of the aggregation was increased with the acquisition of the Spring Valley and Wildings properties in 2015, taking the total arable area to 10,770 hectares. Investments in soil health by correcting PH and removing compaction through deep-ripping have been made to deliver improved yields across the aggregation.
On-farm storage has increased to 14,200 tonnes, which accounts for 50% of average annual grain production, providing savings in logistics costs and enabling increased flexibility of marketing and direct sales. Export oaten hay is also grown to diversify production, market and weather risk, and add more diversity to the rotation.
