Northern Agri Group

The Northern Agri Group was formed in 2003 to represent the farmers in Binnu, Ajana and Ogilvie. Since this time they have expanded to include Northampton. There are diverse interests within the group but sustainability and improving yield by whatever means available is important to the group, as well as farming to deal with changing climatic conditions.
