SHOW societies that have never entered local crops in the state wheat competition are doing so this year with the likelihood of a bumper harvest.
Coordinator of the finals judging in the 2020 Agricultural Societies Council/Suncorp Bank Dryland Field Wheat Competition, Tom Dwyer, Forbes, said there had been a substantial increase in show society interest this growing season.
"We've had a 20 per cent increase in nominations, including at least 12 show societies that have never entered crops before," Mr Dwyer said.
More than 60 crops are expected to be judged locally.
However, Mr Dwyer said it was important for show societies to have their local results reported to the ASC as early as possible.
Results cut-off for the Northern zone is Wednesday, October 21; Western zone November 4; Central zone November 11 and Southern zone November 18.
