2019 SPIRIT OF EXCELLENCE IN AGRICULTURE AWARD WINNERS ANNOUNCED

A Mid-Murray man’s vision for a farm business model that encompasses environmental, economic and social sustainability practices, and plans by an Adelaide Hills teacher to develop an education program to boost attitudes towards agriculture in high schools, have been recognised at the 2019 Spirit of Excellence in Agriculture Awards announced tonight (Friday, October 18).

Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development Tim Whetstone and the Executive Director – Strategy, Science and Corporate Services, for the Department for Environment and Water, Sandy Carruthers, presented the Agricultural Bureau of South Australia Awards at a dinner this evening.

Generously supported by the Department for Environment and Water (DEW) and Primary Industries and Regions (PIRSA), the Awards offer young farmers and rural youth the opportunity to pursue personal and professional development to benefit their local communities.

Chair of the Agricultural Bureau of South Australia (ABSA), Mark Grossman, says the judges were met with an exceptionally high standard of applications this year, which resulted in the narrowest of win results for both awards.

“We’re confident that all of this year’s finalists will continue to influence South Australia’s agriculture industry and their communities for the better and be worthy recipients of any time and money invested in them,” Mark said. “ABSA encourages all of this year’s applicants to continue pursuing their dream projects.”
