BASF Australia are proud to partner with Grant Pontifex to establish a Community Paddock for the Paskeville Progress Association on the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia.
A 22-hectare barley paddock has been generously designated for this initiative. Throughout the 2023 growing season, BASF will supply its range of crop protection products suitable for use on the Community Paddock. Following harvest of the crop, the profits made will be donated to the Paskeville Progress Association.
About the Paskeville Progress Association:
The Paskeville Progress Association is a representative group of residents from Paskeville on South Australia’s Yorke Peninsula. Through community-minded initiatives such as town beautification and events to foster tourism, the association aims to help the local community continue thriving.
Though a small town home to a couple of hundred residents, Paskeville welcomes many more every two years when it hosts the famed Yorke Peninsula Field Days at a site just West of the township. The field days focus on agriculture and the future with extensive displays of the latest agriculture machinery and equipment, technology.
