The Wee Waa District is a major producer of a variety of agricultural commodities including cotton, wheat, beef cattle and sheep. These industries demand much support in terms of supplies, equipment, expert advice and labour provision. The interdependent relationships between farmers, graziers and business organizations provides the economic basis upon which the Wee Waa Community thrives.

Sero-X on track for September release

Sero-X on track for September release

By RUTH CASKEY The Land Newspaper

A BUTTERFLY pea biopesticide developed by Wee Waa-based business Innovate Ag will be released for commercial use in September following the recent approval of its active constituent.

Sero-X has passed the biggest hurdle in its approval stage, with the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority approving butterfly pea extract in December.

​Innovate Ag project director Nick Watts said the approval of the active constituent took time as APVMA hadn’t assessed a similar product in the past.

“An active constituent is normally a single compound chemical, so we had to create a new standard for a new active constituent, which is Clitoria ternatea (butterfly pea) extract, and develop the whole data package required to register it.”

Central Coast man charged in Pilliga forest coal seam gas protest

Central Coast man charged in Pilliga forest coal seam gas protest

By JOANNE MCCARTHY Newcastle Herald

A CENTRAL Coast man was arrested in the Pilliga forest outside Narrabri on Thursday as protesters ramp up a campaign against Santos plans for 850 coal seam gas wells in the forest.

Carpenter Jason Joll, of Calga, was charged with trespass after walking inside Santos’ Leewood coal seam gas wastewater treatment facility construction area.

He joined the protest to draw attention to Santos’ broader plan for 850 wells in the Pilliga. The Leewood facility is designed to treat up to one million litres of coal seam gas wastewater each day from exploratory works in the forest, and is under construction without development consent.

Mr Joll, 49, was shocked at the size of the project which protesters say threatens the Great Artesian Basin.
