WA growers have been urged to donate to the Aussie Grain4Ukraine appeal this harvest — but they will have to follow a different process than farmers in the Eastern States.
National lobby group Grain Producers Australia set up the appeal in April in a bid to deliver humanitarian support to farming communities in the war-torn country, after Russia’s invasion.
Cunderdin grower David Fulwood, who sits on the farmer-led GPA sub-committee formed to co-ordinate the fundraising campaign, said he wanted as many growers as possible to support it.
In WA, growers can deliver grain in their own name through the normal process, with the transfer of donated grain then made by logging into the growers’ Loadnet account.
Farmers have also been urged to show support by flying the Ukraine flag on machinery during harvest and sharing photos on social media with the #AUSSIEGRAIN4UKRAINE hashtag.
