PROSERPINE DISTRICT UPDATE - SEPTEMBER 2020
STAFF CHANGES AT CANEGROWERS PROSERPINE

After more than 22 years working at CANEGROWERS Proserpine, Executive Officer, Roslyn Borellini has announced her retirement effective on 29 October. Roslyn has been a loyal and dedicated advocate for the local sugar industry, and she has earned the respect and admiration of many within the CANEGROWERS organisation – we also know she will be sorely missed by the district’s growers. On behalf of the board, staff, and growers we congratulate Roslyn on achieving this milestone and wish her health and happiness for the future.
 
We are pleased to announce that current Administration Officer, Sarah Addis will be taking over Roslyn’s duties. At this stage we envisage Sarah will continue to work her usual four-day roster (i.e. every day except Wed). Congratulations on your new appointment, Sarah!
 
This means we will need to back-fill Sarah’s Admin role – if you know someone who would like to apply for the position, please refer them to the advertisement in this newsletter.
 
NEW RECORD-KEEPING REQUIREMENTS FOR CHEMICAL USE BY ALL QLD FARMERS

There have been recent changes in the new Department of Agriculture & Fisheries (DAF) Chemical Use Regulation which apply to all farmers in Queensland.  The changes relate mainly to record keeping.  With the DAF compliance program underway in the Central Region, there have been considerable confusion amongst growers. 
 
For BMP Accredited growers there is little impact for record-keeping, however growers with few if any records, the new regulatory hurdle is somewhat higher than before.  Cloud cover and rainfall during application are the only changes required to meet the new regs.  While these indicators add no value, it appears to be part of some standardisation of record keeping regs across the States.
 
Please note that CANEGROWERS Farm Chemicals Recording Books can cater for the additional requirements of cloud cover and rainfall during application.
 
Amongst other issues, we are continuing to push DAF management on:
  • Sourcing of meteorological data.  While wind speed and direction can be readily estimated in the field (or measured with a wind meter), we have always accepted growers using the closest weather station to record temp and Relative Humidity (RH)/delta T information.  The compliance team appears to be pushing for a weather station on every farm. CANEGROWERS is challenging this at the highest level within DAF.
  • Restricting the business of the compliance visits to the requirements of the regulations, rather than being a non-voluntary pseudo-extension program.
 
This link https://www.business.qld.gov.au/industries/farms-fishing-forestry/agriculture/land-management/chemical-controls/using-chemicals/keeping-records takes you to a Qld Gov page which pretty clearly explains the record keeping requirements. Requirements specific to the Environmentally Relevant Activity (ERA) products (ametryn, atrazine, diuron, hexazinone) relate to farmers in Great Barrier Reef catchments.
 
DAF Brisbane also advise that information sheets are in the development stage and may be on the website within the next month. Local DAF compliance teams have prepared some of their own interim sheets, for use when dealing with each individual grower they select to hold a compliance visit with or seek records from.
 
BMP accredited growers are not the target for compliance activities.
 
2,4-D review by APVMA
The APVMA is proceeding with its proposed changes to regulations for 2,4-D. These include significant restrictions on its use during the spring-summer period, especially in central and southern Queensland. On your behalf, CANEGROWERS will liaise with Nufarm and others during the 30-day consultation period to ensure APVMA has given due consideration to our respective submissions on the proposed changes.
 
Update on Changed conditions of use for 2,4-D
From discussions held with APVMA and DAF is that following considerations they will issue a ’deemed permit’ for 12 months. A deemed permit is like a regulatory instruction.  This mechanism allows the label instructions that have been in place before the most recent decisions on 2,4-D to apply for another year. It essentially allows a transition.  But it only applies to product bearing the old label. It is hoped that APVMA will issue this prior to 30th September, however if the wheels of process turn slowly, it will be coming.
 
It won’t apply to product with new labels (which will take some time to appear). So when the stock runs out with the old labels, the new instructions apply. So, any stock with the old label can be used with the pre-decision label requirements, for a 12-month period.
 
Below canopy spraying of 2,4-D – a reminder of an earlier amendment 2018, by the APVMA
In 2018, the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) announced interim measures from their review of 2,4-D which required, among other things, specific downwind buffer zones for sensitive vegetation and aquatic areas.
 
Unfortunately, the buffer requirements applied to all boom spraying and did not consider the use of droppers or directed spray equipment.  Through the efforts of Nufarm and other participants, the National Working Party on Pesticide Application and the APVMA agreed to amend the definition of a “boom sprayer” in relation to downwind buffer zones with application of products such as 2,4-D.
 
As a result, Section 2.2 of the recently updated Spray Drift Risk Assessment Manual lists the following as NOT requiring a spray drift risk assessment:
“application with specialised equipment in cropping situations where the nozzles are orientated below the horizontal of the top of the crop canopy and spray is released at a height below the top of the crop canopy (e.g. drop nozzles used to direct the spray to the furrows between emerged crops, or small booms used to spray inter-row areas in tree and vine crops)”
 
Therefore, the boom spray buffer zones listed on labels do NOT apply if droppers, such as Irvin Legs, are utilised in the application of sugarcane pesticides (when used in accordance with the exemption above).
 
This is good news as 2,4-D is commonly applied below the canopy to emerged broadleaf weeds and vines, and this change will allow spraying up to the edges of cane blocks. Typical under-canopy spray setups include Irvin droppers and spray bars, side nozzles fitted to spay shields or hoods, and a range of other under-canopy spray bars /nozzle setups. Some dropper arrangements are adjustable and whether or not a buffer zone applies will depend whether the dropper nozzles are above or below the canopy.
 
This amendment should be reflected on labels as existing labelled stock is used up. Note that nozzles must still deliver no smaller than a VERY COARSE spray droplet size category.
 
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON WORKING NEAR OR AROUND POWERLINES
 
1.   Power line heights and our agricultural equipment
As we all know equipment is getting bigger and the standard powerline heights have not moved with this.  CANEGROWERS has continued to impress this point upon Ergon and the Queensland Office of Electrical Safety for several years.  Through these discussions Ergon conducted a review of rural lines in intensive agricultural activity regions. 
 
They identified 3,000 lines that they will commit to raising from the current standard height of 5.5 m for a standard voltage to a height of 8 m.  However, these will be done on a pole replacement cycle, based on age and if poles are damaged or impacted by cyclones etc, or other clearly identified reasons, based on reports to Ergon and their own general inspections.  
 
The simplest way to determine the voltage of a powerline and therefore relevant minimum heights is via the ‘Look up and Live’ website (click here) and use the search facility to find a road or pole number to locate the powerline.  Click on the powerline to open an information box which displays the powerline’s voltage and other relevant information. The regulated minimum height of powerlines is dependent on the pole’s voltage (click here for clearance heights).
 
Growers wishing to measure the height of a power line on their property should consider purchasing a laser height measurer. 
 
Laser height measurers are available for purchase from local tool stockists, such as Bunnings at what you may consider is an affordable price -  https://www.bunnings.com.au/our-range/tools/hand-tools/measuring-tools/laser-measures
 
In the interim Ergon and the Queensland Government’s Office of Electrical Safety has introduced a number of tools (listed from Point 2 below) for Growers and contractors to use, in order to better plan your workplace health and safety requirements around power lines near your farm. These will help you manage the risk on your farm/workplace, avoid accidents and save lives.
 
Accidents have continued to occur, with two recently in the Burdekin and Herbert where lines were struck by harvesters. Ergon and the Government are becoming more concerned with the amount of cane grown close to or under powerlines and the incidents of line strikes or near misses, coupled with what they see as a lack of uptake of workplace safety precautionary measures available to Growers and contractors. I urge you to seriously consider using the tools listed in the points below.
 
2.   Are you concerned powerlines you work near are ‘sagging’ and have become below the minimum height requirements? – then you are able to a Complete Safety Advice Form to have them checked
If concerned about the height of the power line, we recommend that you complete an online Safety Advice Form to have Ergon come on-farm to measure the line.  Click here to access the form.
 
3.   Rotamarkers help avoid accidents and save lives
It is very important that powerline markers are installed to ensure harvesters and farm machinery operators keep the powerline hazards front of mind.  Ergon now also have new very visible powerline markers called rotamarkers available for installation on properties. Ergon installs them for free. The rotating motion of these red and white markers draws the attention of operators and reduces the chance of operators having inattentional blindness and not seeing the powerlines when operating near them.
 
 
Click here to watch Glen Cook from Ergon Energy talks about the rotamarkers.
Click here for further information on powerline markers.
 
4.   Look up and Live App
The Look up and Live App is an interactive, self-serve safety tool that shows the location of overhead powerlines, so you can identify risks and hazards well before you start work, especially if you’re in a high-risk industry like agriculture.  Anyone with a mobile phone (iPhone or Android) or any device can access in the App stores. 
 
5.   Rural electrical safety working around powerlines & other risks: Worth doing, could save a life
CANEGROWERS Mackay has worked with TAFE Queensland to offer the new electrical safety online induction. This short course is suitable for sugar industry workers who are required to work near live electrical equipment and lines. The content includes powerline risks, exclusion zones, step potential as well as some interesting case studies and short electrical awareness videos. The course will provide growers and their employees with a basic understanding of hazard identification, risk control and risk assessment specific to the rural industries.
 
The course is offered online, takes approximately one hour to complete, and costs $95. To enrol, visit the TAFE Queensland website: https://tafeqld.edu.au/courses/18936/rural-electrical-safety-awareness.

FALL ARMYWORM UPDATE
In the central region fall armyworm has been detected in corn crops but has not been detected in sugarcane as yet. Growers who have planted mixed species fallows or legume crops are urged to remain vigilant. Scouting and accurate identification is crucial to determine economic thresholds for spraying. Not all products are effective at all lifestages or situations and require rotating to prevent resistance. For assistance, contact Frank - 0419 679 427.

PROSERPINE YOUNG FARMERS UPDATE
This month Wilmar kindly hosted a session for Proserpine Young Farmers to discuss Cane Supply Agreements, individual and group pooling, and general questions. PYF had some spare spaces and gave the opportunity to some other farmers in the district to join us and be “young farmers” for the night.

The session raised some interesting topics and sparked many conversations. We are grateful for Wilmar representatives Steve Postma for running the session and Shirley Norris and PJ Gileppa for organising and coming along to help. If you want to know more about these topics, Steve, Shirley and PJ are willing to help.
FOCUS ON FARMERS IS THE RIGHT DIRECTION

CANEGROWERS has welcomed as a step in the right direction the Liberal National Party’s early State Election commitment to restore a balance between measures to protect the Great Barrier Reef and their impact on farmers.

“Putting farmers in the middle of solutions for the environment will help turn the dial back from the current bureaucratic overkill with reef regulations to a sensible and cooperative future that allows for a vibrant agricultural sector,” CANEGROWERS Chairman and Mackay sugarcane grower Paul Schembri said.

“The LNP has been talking with us and made a commitment to work with us directly to map out a process for the review they have announced in a letter to all major farming groups.

“We believe the review should deliver a repeal of the 2019 ramped up regulations which are a bridge too far in red tape and government interference in everyday farming operations.”

A CANEGROWERS analysis has found the current path of regulation will cost the Queensland economy $1.3 billion over the next decade, yet do little to secure the health of the Reef.

“We look forward to the LNP’s stated commitment to best practice being translated into ongoing government support for our voluntary industry program, Smartcane BMP, which has 70% of cane farmland engaged already,” Mr Schembri said.

“But we do have reservations about an indication that an LNP government would legislate minimum farm practice standards. Day to day farm operations should not be enshrined in law – we’ve always said this is a pathway to stifling innovation and engagement with farmers.”

The CANEGROWERS position on reef regulations has been strident and consistent. The peak sugarcane growers’ group has been calling for the political parties to commit to these measures ahead of the 2020 Queensland Election:

  • Repeal 2019 reef legislation and regulations
  • Make water quality plans and programs realistic and credible
  • Overhaul the system that manages and scrutinises water quality research that is used to inform policy
  • Support the sugarcane industry best management practice program, Smartcane BMP
  • Move functions related to agriculture from the Environment Department to a revitalised Agriculture Department

QSL SEPTEMBER UPDATE
Comparing marketers' results

As the 2021-Season marketing nomination process ramps up ahead of the October deadline, there’s no shortage of material from Queensland’s various sugar marketers regarding their results and the benefits of their particular offering. Here’s some handy tips to help you weigh up the claims and counter-claims that may come your way:


1. Beware the cherry-pickers!
While all businesses like to showcase their best results, sometimes it’s the information that they’ve chosen not to highlight that’s necessary to get the full story.
 
For example:
MARKETING COSTS: QSL’s Shared Pool is made up of a number of elements, including costs and revenues. Sometimes we may incur a marketing cost which ultimately delivers an increased premium or a shipping discount. Focusing on the cost alone does not capture the wider benefit achieved elsewhere on our balance sheet.

  
2. Context is vital
Sometimes what looks like a simple comparison isn’t quite so simple or appropriate once you take into account other important factors.
 
For example:
US QUOTA: QSL’s US Quota pool value for the 2019 Season included the cost of QSL buying additional export certificates (CQEs) so we could sell more sugar into the highly lucrative US market. While this outlay lowered the pool price, our growers received an increased proportion of US sales and a higher US Quota return overall.

 
3. Don’t count your chickens...
The 2020 Season is barely halfway through and so most pool returns quoted at this early stage are estimates that still have a lot of room to change before they are finalised in July 2021.
 
For example: 
SHARED POOL RESULTS: QSL captures all costs and returns associated with our pricing and marketing services in the Shared Pool allocation applied to every tonne marketed through our system. While we publish a breakdown of the Shared Pool each month, it’s important to note that QSL takes a conservative approach to this estimate, which can lead to a considerable difference between early estimates and those finally achieved in July after the crush.

 
4. Comparing apples with apples
Pool estimates and returns – even of very similar products – can only be accurately compared if they are the same kind of pool that’s been priced over the same period and valued on the same date.
 
For example:
THE HARVEST POOL: Comparing the results of the QSL Harvest Pool (which is priced during the current season only) with a committed pool which is priced over multiple seasons is not a like-for-like comparison.

 
The points above illustrate why it’s so important to get the whole story when considering your marketing options. Before you lock in your marketer for 2021, make sure you chat with your QSL rep – they’re happy to answer any questions you may have regarding our performance, products and services so you can make an informed decision.
 
 New and improved for 2021
Queensland Sugar Limited (QSL) has released its product range for the 2021 Season, with a host of new features and products designed to give Queensland cane growers more pricing options and increased flexibility.

QSL Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Greg Beashel said the improvements sought to provide a range of products that delivered options for all cane growers, whether they be large corporate farmers, or smaller producers juggling work off farm. "The global raw sugar price is notoriously volatile, so it's really important that our state's cane farmers and sugar millers are able to make the most of favourable pricing when it's available," Mr Beashel said.

"Together with easier access to pricing and market information through initiatives such as our industry-first app, these new products and improvements aim to do just that."
 
More pricing opportunities
•             Commitment limits increased to 70%
•             Price up to 98% yourself in the Self-Managed Harvest Contract
 
More flexible grower-managed pricing
•             Choose if and when you want to roll in the Individual Futures Contract
•             Simplified Self-Managed Harvest Contract with new rolling option
 
More ways to price it yourself
•             New Grower Floor Contract lets you lock in a minimum return with potential for higher returns if the market rises
•             New Defaulting Target Price Contract lets you set your own pricing targets up to 3 years in advance, with any unfilled orders automatically defaulting to the Harvest Pool in April before the crush
 
Managing a drop in production
Worried about the impact of wet weather on your production? QSL growers with committed pricing have multiple options to address in-season production reductions, including:
•             Shifting tonnage between ABNs
•             Rolling pricing forward to the next season
•             Unwinding pricing

STL APPOINTS NEW CEO
Sugar Terminals Limited (STL, NSX:SUG) has today appointed David Quinn to assume the role of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in October 2020, following the retirement of current CEO John Warda. Mr Quinn is a highly-regarded executive with more than 25 years of experience in private and public sector organisations. This experience has extended across major infrastructure, transport and logistics, manufacturing, mining, oil and gas, primarily in executive management roles throughout Australia and internationally.

In recent years, Mr Quinn has been a sought-after advisor to national logistics business Linfox where he led their acquisition of the Aurizon intermodal freight business. Prior to this he was CEO of Building Queensland and held executive management roles with Projects Queensland, TasRail, Asciano Group, GasNet Australia and BHP.

STL Chairman Mark Gray said Mr Quinn’s vast experience in supply chain logistics and asset management, particularly in regional parts of Queensland, made him an excellent choice for the role of CEO with STL. “David’s diverse career is an ideal fit for STL’s strategy to grow and diversify our bulk commodity storage and handling business in Queensland, to complement our core sugar business. His legal background and demonstrated experience in sustainable business growth, asset management and employee relations positions him well to continue the excellent work undertaken to date to grow the STL business,” he said.

Mr Quinn holds a Bachelor of Economics from the University of Queensland and Bachelor of Laws with Honours from the University of Melbourne. He was admitted as a Barrister and Solicitor in the Supreme Court of Victoria and now resides in Brisbane. Mr Quinn’s appointment this month ensures an adequate handover period, with outgoing CEO John Warda retiring from the role in October following the STL Annual General Meeting.

Mr Gray acknowledged the important work managed by Mr Warda during his three and a half years as STL’s CEO. “John has overseen a period of rapid change for the Company and built an effective team. Together, John and his team have implemented a new business model and delivered reliable returns to shareholders and consistently high levels of service to customers. My fellow Directors and I commend John for his service and wish him well for the future,” he said.
WRC INDUSTRY & COMMUNITY DISASTER RESILIENCE RESEARCH PROJECT
According to the ACCC, home and contents insurance premiums in northern Australia are on average almost double those in the rest of Australia.The threat of Natural Disasters, such as cyclones and floods, are one of the main causes of high insurance premiums in Northern Australia.
 
The ACCC’s inquiry into Northern Australian Insurance found that preparing your property for a cyclone is one of the most effective ways to reduce risk:

‘Property level mitigation is a more effective way to address cyclone risk, but this is not always recognised by insurers and does not result in the same scale of premium reductions.’
 
Whitsunday Climate Change Innovation Hub is partnering with James Cook University to deliver a research project on the impacts of Cyclone Debbie focused on providing recommendations to:
  • Improve disaster preparedness
  • Enhance cyclone resilience to reduce loss
  • Advance the efforts of community recovery 
The project (July 2020 – June 2021) intent is to provide guidance to mitigate loss and enhance disaster recovery outcomes which in turn will help build the case against insurers charging excessively high insurance premiums.
 
If you have experiences to share about Cyclone Debbie, things you did that reduced loss or things you would do differently, register your interest in the project by visiting Your Say Whitsunday: https://yoursay.whitsundayrc.qld.gov.au/what-did-you-learn-from-cyclone-debbie
