In this together: Seeding prospects for a successful harvest season

To the tune of Paul Kelly’s famous refrain: from little things, big things grow.

As the team at Motion looks out over the country’s illustrious farmland, they warmly welcome their customers, suppliers, and partners to a fresh start and a new year of sowing the seeds of success for Australian farmers.

Following a year marked by the challenges of flooding and climate change that impacted many of the country’s tight-knit rural communities, many Australians took time off over the holidays to enjoy the fruits of their labour with friends, family, and loved ones. By ushering in the new year amongst kin, Motion, together with fellow Australians, are holding tight to the promise of new beginnings.

Mid-January to February is traditionally the time of year when Australian farmers begin dusting off their sowing and seeding equipment to gear up for planting crops for a new harvest season.

For most people working in the agriculture sector, there is a shared understanding that the only thing certain is that uncertainty is inevitable. A year in farming is likely to be impacted by fluctuating temperatures, unpredictable weather patterns, and the ebb and flow of native wildlife, insects, and of course, mice.

Typically, March through to late May is ideal planting season for wheat, barley, and canola in Australia, while at the same time, the season’s first cotton, almond, and walnut harvests also fall in the first half of the year. It is during these critical months that the team at Motion set all systems to go, with engines firing on all cylinders, according to Motion’s National Business Development Manager for Agriculture, Russell Randal.
