This 326.08 ha (807.5 acre) cane farm in the Upper Haughton has 794 acres of cane cultivation.The vendors have set it up for easy management utilizing dual row planting with long rows with minimum tillage and controlled traffic operation. A recycling system collects all the tail water with a 6" Southern Cross recycling pump connected to approximately 7 km of 12" and 15" poly pipe that takes the water to all outlets around the property together with the rest of the irrigation supply.
With a Sunwater allocation of 10 meg per ha, water is pumped by two 12" China Centrifugal pumps and one 6" centrifugal on a smaller 30 acre paddock across the road from the main farm.
The farm is on 3 titles and consists of mainly Baratta clay soils which are regularly treated with Gypson thus maintaining high productivity and soil health. This years crop is estimated at approximately 15,000 tonnes with 120 ha (300 acres) currently growing Rice and Soybeans due to be harvested in the next few months.
The gated water outlets are all spaced 100m apart to eliminate any cup changing thus making irrigation batch changes fast and efficient.
No machinery is included in the sale. This property is in the Invicta Mill area and in the Burdekin's premier growing area with easy access to both Ayr and Townsville. Call Cass today for more information or arrange an inspection.
