Riverine Plains

Riverine Plains Inc is a not for profit, farming systems research and extension organisation that services cropping and mixed farmers in north east Victoria and southern NSW.   

We have a membership base of over 315 farming families spread across a wide geographical area.  Our members farm as far north as Lockhart and Henty in NSW and as far south as Euroa and Shepparton in Victoria.  The majority of our members are dryland farmers though a number also have access to irrigation.
