The growing of a canola crop

By Jim Honner (Forbes, NSW) #ThankAFarmerForYourNextMeal

This week's photo library focuses on growing the Canola crop. Canola is an important crop in the planting relation, with an estimated 550,000 hectares sown down in NSW alone in 2020. The oil that is extracted from the seed post harvest is commonly used for cooking, and in food processing plants. As well as being used in the production of bio diesel and bio plastics. Whilst the by products which are left over after the seeds are crushed and the oil extracted include; animal feed pet food and fertiliser.

The Thank A Farmer For Your Next Meal brand aims to promote the Australian agricultural industry and its primary producers to a wider audience in order to close the continually widening gap between producer and consumer, city and bush.
