The Wongan aggregation is located near the township of Wongan Hills in the Northern Wheatbelt region North of Perth, WA. The local region is well suited to the production of grains and oilseeds and the aggregation’s annual average rainfall is approximately 400mm.
Historically, the aggregation has been operated as a cropping enterprise. The Wongan aggregation is farmed in a sustainable rotation that includes the production of wheat, barley and canola.
Lawson aims to optimise production and sustainability by utilising controlled traffic, 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.
