SmartCane BMP Incentive Payment


Current collective and individual Cane Supply Agreements, Schedule 4 Clause 11 includes an incentive payment for growers who achieve their Accreditation and Certificate for the Smartcane BMP program. Incentive payment was available for the 2017 and 2018 seasons only.

Wilmar have agreed to extend this incentive payment offer of 15 cents per tonne capped at 25,000 tonnes until 1st July 2020 subject to growers registering for Smartcane BMP by 29th March 2019. Accordingly members who want to obtain the Smartcane BMP incentive payment will have to register with Burdekin Productivity Services by the 29th of March 2019 to be eligible. This can be done either online or by attending a workshop at BPS.

As a result of extension, BPS is conducting an extra workshop to be held on Monday 18th March from 1pm-3pm at the BPS office. Growers interested in attending you are asked to contact Jasmine Connolly on 0428 927 079 to register your interest.
