Lucerne Australia – An Overview

Warrick Thorpe discusses the role of Lucerne Australia in his position as chairman.

Lucerne seed production is a unique industry with only five major production areas in the world, the Upper South East of South Australia being one of those. Lucerne Australia was formed in 2005 following community meetings which identified that the industry needed a united voice to be listened to by decision makers. Lucerne is a rewarding but challenging crop to grow.

Lucerne Australia provides the forum to tackle industry issues that farmers haven’t the time to address on an individual basis. The future of the industry is good so long as those involved work together.
