How we help cotton growers

SC-icono-250

Since 2012, Southern Cotton has been helping cotton growers in the NSW Southern Valleys get the highest return on every crop through our best-practice ginning services.

You'll love working closely with our award-winning team, who'll personalise your ginning contract and ginning rates. At Southern Cotton, we make the process easy. You won't have to worry about anything.

Here's what we do

SC-icons-cotton

Cotton ginning

Consistently ranked as one of the best gins in Australia, privately-owned Southern Cotton provides fast, timely ginning for local growers. Plus:

    • Tailored logistics
    • Cottonseed marketing
    • Maximum seed program
    • Cotton lint marketing flexibility
    • Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tracking system
    • Personal grower portal with current and historical reporting.
SC-icons-expor

Export

An AQIS-approved site, with authorised officers onsite at all times, Southern Cotton exports both cotton lint and cottonseed directly from the gin to the port. This is the most cost-effective method of transporting our produce from the Riverina.

When you export with Southern Cotton, you can expect the following:

    • Timely packing with no cut-offs for container delivery to port missed
    • Re-bagging of any cotton lint not export ready
    • Accurate and compliant export documentation

Our warehousing service involves loading bales into containers live (while still on trucks) to reduce turnaround times.

SC-icons-warehous

Warehousing

Want to store your bales? Southern Cotton's warehousing facility allows our growers to store bales, in the following situations:

    • Bales can be stored, without prior sale, while growers wait for classing results
    • Bales can be stored and tendered via Proclass
    • Bales can be stored for merchants and picked into lots before packing into containers for exporting
    • With a large, sealed concrete staging area, the Southern Cotton warehouse protects bales.
SC-icons-farmbuds

Farming

At Southern Cotton, we're recognised for our dedication to best management practices. Our best-practice philosophy is showcased on our own myBMP accredited farm, Tubbo Irrigation.

Here, we grow our own cotton and winter cereals on 2,000 hectares of leased land, allowing growers to kick the dirt and talk all-things cotton with our friendly directors and farm staff. Based in Coleambally, growers are welcome to contact Paul Flewitt (paul.flewitt@southerncotton.com.au) at any time, to take a tour.

SC-icons-seedlings

Cottonseed enquiry

At Southern Cotton, cottonseed can be purchased directly from the gin. Price varies according to current market conditions. For cottonseed enquires email cottonseed@southerncotton.com.au.
