Cash For Communities



We’d like to thank the farming community for taking part in the Cash for Communities programme. This year over 850 farmers signed up for the programme, raising more than $35,000 for local communities around New Zealand.

Any farmer who purchased Ballance Agri-Nutrients fertiliser on their PGG Wrightson account, between 3 March and 31 May 2014, could earn cash for their local community, school, St John or Rescue Helicopter.

PGG Wrightson, in association with participating suppliers, is pleased to donate $1 for every tonne of Ballance Agri-Nutrients fertiliser purchased.*
