Welcome to Morvenvale – a cotton and grain farm located between Walgett and Collarenebri on the North Western Plains of New South Wales, Australia.
Owned and operated by David and Sue Ricardo.
We are zero till farmers cropping around
9000 Ha on
475mm (19 inch) annual rainfall.
We grow a mixture of crops in rotation.
Cotton, wheat, barley, chickpeas and fababeans are our
main crops with some canola too.
Our soils are susceptable to compaction.
3 metre tramlines and a no stock policy help.
Above all – we love our stubble.
Ground cover is king when it comes
to storing moisture and keeping it
as near to the surface as possible.
