Rumleigh cotton farm with no cotton, 2007

Susan GORDON-BROWN, born 1969.

 

With the nearby Barwon River being below the level at which irrigation is permitted, this 5000 acre property has insufficient water to continue farming cotton. Farmer Michael Jeffrey inspects a field where cotton had been last harvested in 2004.

 

Rumleigh, Brewarrina, New South Wales.
