In New South Wales Russell Moloney has already yielded a great return from purchasing Pacific Seeds ’ Tornado TT canola seed: winning a study to tour to Germany by purchasing Tornado TT canola seed.

Russell farms with his wife, Felicity, parents Sandra and George, brother Tyson and sister-in-law, Sarah. They sowed 170 hectares Tornado TT canola this year as part of their 1,800 hectare cropping program. The Moloney’s also grow rice in the summer, when they have enough water, and run a self-replacing merino flock.

All of their winter crops are sown, but in need of rain to get started. “Tornado canola did well for us last year,” said Mr Moloney. “We didn’t buy it to win the competition – that’s just a great bonus.

“It’s a triazine-tolerant variety that’s suited to this area and it comes with a recommendation from our agronomist.”

Their local agronomist, Craig Sharam, from Elders Albury, helps with checking the crops and advises the Moloney’s on everything from seed and fertilisers to crop protection.

“This will be my first trip overseas, so it will all be pretty interesting,” said Mr Moloney.
