ANDERSON Renée

Renée Anderson is a mixed cropping irrigation farmer from Emerald growing a diverse range of crops including cotton, chickpeas, mungbeans and wheat on her 1200-acre operation which she runs with her family. With 26 years’ experience in the Australian cotton industry, Renée has worked in entomology & farming systems research, agronomy and environmental management systems.

Renée has been working as the Cotton Australia Regional Manager for the last 12 years directly with growers providing policy information, advice, education and services designed to upskill and advocate for growers and the industry. Renée has a strong focus on environmental welfare and sustainability within agriculture, and how these evidence based practices impact farm management and consumer behaviour.

In 2019 Renée was awarded the Nuffield Australia farming scholarship, where she explored the farming best practice approaches and their impacts on social licence with experts, industry and farmers from across 15 countries including Europe, the USA and Canada. Renée has developed a strong on-line presence educating her followers about the agricultural industry and her firsthand personal experiences of life on the land in Australia.
