Bob Nixon
Bob Nixon runs a broad acre farming operation near Kalannie in the Central Wheatbelt region of Western Australia. In partnership with his wife, parents, two brothers and staff, the Nixons have a cropping program of 15,000HA planted to wheat, barley and canola and a family-run gypsum mining operation.

Mr Nixon is a member of the Liebe Grower Group, the local GRDC Regional Cropping Solutions Network, and is a 2014 Nuffield Scholar whose research project focused on managing production risk in the dry and variable climate of Western Australia’s eastern wheat belt through crop rotation and diversity, reducing input costs and benefitting from economies of scale.

He has been a member of the Grain Industry Association of WA's Wheat Council since 2016 and was chair of the association for 3 years to October 2020. Mr Nixon was then appointed to the board of the Grains Research & Development Corporation.
