Preparations are under way to ensure that Bundaberg's Agrotrend continues to help rural industries grow and prosper in the future.

Local business, Northside Produce Agency, has partnered with the Bundaberg Field Day Society to ensure that this year’s event will provide a platform to support our farmers through education, technology and strong agriculturally based exhibitors.

“We are excited to partner with industry and local businesses such as Northside Produce Agency, who are based on the ground and are dealing with the community on a day to day basis,” event manager Ainsley Gatley said.

“Brian and his team are on the ground and are passionate about the agricultural industry, so it's great to have them commit to Agrotrend and help us to support our farmers.”

Brian from Northside Produce said that Agrotrend will be used not only to exhibit the extensive range of products held at the North Bundaberg based business, but also as a conduit to allow farmers to have direct interaction with several supplier representatives who will be on site over the two days.

“This will allow farmers to talk directly with suppliers to discuss relevant needs and possible new solutions that are coming through the supply channels,” he said.

Brian also said that some competitions will also be undertaken to add some fun to the event together with a chance to win some great prizes.

Farming and lifestyle focused activities for the whole family to enjoy are key to the appeal of the Agrotrend field days, to be held at the Bundaberg Recreational Precinct on Friday, May 8 and Saturday, May 9 with the Rotary Rodeo as the final event on the Saturday night.

Mrs Gatley said over the past five years Agrotrend has seen visitor numbers through the gate reflect the industry that we work in.

“There have been challenges thrown at the industry and we believe that Agrotrend has helped raise awareness of what machinery, support, technologies and opportunities are out there while paying tribute to an industry that forms the basis for our region,” she said.
