Riverine Plains Inc is an independent farming systems group dedicated to improving the productivity of broadacre farming systems in north-east Victoria and southern New South Wales. The group was established during 1999, and our membership is drawn from the eastern NSW–Victoria border region, known as the Riverine Plain.
The Riverine Plains membership base includes grain and mixed farming businesses and our focus is on providing independent, timely and relevant information to our members through a rigorous research program and our annual schedule of events and publications.
Riverine Plains Inc specialises in farmer-driven research and extension that delivers on-the-ground benefits to members. We believe that providing quality information, leading in research and sharing ideas with our members is key to achieving more progressive and resilient farming communities. And we believe strongly in our motto of “Farmers Inspiring Farmers”.
Riverine Plains was registered as a charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) in 2018.
As a registered charity, Riverine Plains can now attract a wider range of funding for our research and extension programs.
In October 2017, Riverine Plains Inc was also endorsed by the ATO as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR). The DGR status is for an Approved Research Institute and the Riverine Plains Scholarship Fund. Donations to Riverine Plains Research and/or Scholarship Fund are tax deductable.
