The inspirational passion, innovation and professionalism of Australian farmers will be celebrated once again this year as part of the nationally-acclaimed 2015 Australian Farmer of the Year awards.

Nominations for the category of 2015 Grain Grower of the Year are currently being sought, with submissions due by June 26.

The Grain Grower of the Year category is sponsored by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and the winner will automatically be in the running to claim the overall award of 2015 Australian Farmer of the Year.

The awards are hosted by the Kondinin Group and ABC Rural and aim to promote a positive image of Australian farmers, inspire and encourage career choices and investment interest in Australian agriculture.

Nomination forms and further information can be found on the Farmer of the Year website.
