Embracing change since the 90’s when they transitioned from burning their cane to green harvesting, Gary and Ian Considine purchased their first GPS system in 2004. Joining forces with neighbouring farmers, Scott Simpson and Tony Jeppesen to form a co-operative group, they quickly realised the potential cost savings of shared equipment for planting and harvesting. The sharing of knowledge further reduced costs and formed the foundation for participation in Project Catalyst.
