Introducing Peter and Karen Agars

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Hannaford welcomes Peter and Karen Agars as the new seed treatment specialist in the Ravensthorpe, Lake King and Newdegate areas. Peter and Karen Agars have had a long association with farming. Operating a family farm for 25 years has given them a great understanding of managing their own business, and the hard work and organisation required

Peter grew up on the family farm near Wirrulla in South Australia. After leaving school he took up shearing as well as working on the farm in busy times. He married Karen, a local girl from Nunjikompita, and they progressed into managing the farm - cropping wheat, barley, oats and running sheep.

The question will be raised if this grain is viable to keep as seed. The following information may help you to decide if you should keep the grain for seed or if you should source new seed that is undamaged.
