The first 100 growers to register for the CBH Group's Better Farm IQ training course will receive a $500 discount on the overall cost.

This comes after the CBH Group recently secured funding for the Better Farm IQ Program, through the State Government’s scheme known as FarmTraining WA.

Better Farm IQ is the CBH Group's on-farm quality assurance program, previously subsidised through FarmBis which was scrapped on 30 June, 2008.

David Jeffries, Better Farm IQ manager said the move to secure funding through FarmTraining WA was a great achievement as it will mean continued support for growers looking to become quality assured.

"In securing the funding through FarmTraining, we have retained the opportunity for growers to receive financial assistance with the Better Farm IQ Program - a program which helps growers to better manage their on-farm food safety risks," he said.

Currently 1500 growers in Western Australia are quality assured, producing just under half of the state's grain.

"This demonstrates the increasing number of growers who are recognising their integral role in maintaining and improving quality in the supply chain," Mr Jeffries said.

He said that commencing this harvest, and over the next five years, the CBH Group will be progressing towards having all of its receival points quality assured.
