#behindtheseeds Competition Guidelines


We believe behind every farmer there is field of knowledge and stories. We want to build a forum for a community of Australian farmers to share the story behind the crop or pasture they have grown using AusWest and Stephen Pastures Seeds. Hence, the birth of #BehindTheSeeds.

To celebrate the launch of our #BehindTheSeeds community, we’re running a competition from 06 February 2017 until 30 April 2017. We have an AgFalcon Agriculture Drone valued at $7800 (including GST) up for grabs thanks to Falcon UAV. With this machine in your toolkit, you’ll be able to tell us the story behind all your crop or pasture with more detail and efficiency! What do you have to do to enter? Just make sure you’re registered to the AusWest and Stephen Pasture Seeds website and submit your paddock photo and accompanying story.
