Young Australian Farmer award of the year goes to Ben Martin
The Australia’s Young Farmer of the Year for 2019 award has been announced.
Ben Martin is a 35 year old mango farmer from Bowen who picked up the award this month for his outstanding work and contribution to mango farming. Mr Martin, who manages approximately 20,000 trees across he and his parent’s North Queensland properties, is also the Australian Mango Industry Association chairman.
Ben was named the winner at a ceremony at Canberra’s Parliament House, as part of the annual Kondinin Group and ABC Rural Australian Farmer of the Year Awards.
Mr Martin said he was honoured to win the award and be recognised for the work he does on-farm and for the industry.
“I have actively sought to expand the mango industry and improve productivity and environmental sustainability and have held discussions with government to expand export markets and look at best practice entry protocols,” Mr Martin said.
