Seasons Magazine - Elders Rural Services

Looking forward to the opportunities of 2022

The summer 2021 edition  of Seasons magazine offers you news and insights into the latest products and tools from our key partners.

While weather conditions in some parts of the country are causing unexpected impacts, the agriculture industry is largely experiencing good seasonal conditions, record-high commodity prices, booming farmland values, low interest rates and an enormous increase in global demand for quality Australian agricultural products.

This environment has created exceptional opportunities for Australian producers and reasons for optimism and excitement as we approach 2022. We look forward to sharing the opportunities of the coming year with you and hope you find value within the pages of this edition of Seasons Magazine.
