The online matching service connecting growers with picking contractors, “Pick N Match” will be back in business in the New Year.
Established by Cotton Australia and operated on the CA website, the free service was very popular last season, allowing picking contractors to post their details online, with growers then able to search by location, equipment and capacity.
Using the techniques pioneered by online dating agencies, Pick N Match took the concept in a different direction, allowing very busy picking and spraying contractors to match up with growers.
With possibly a record harvest ahead, this season demand for picking services will be extremely tight and making arrangements with contractors sooner rather than later will be the best approach.
Contractors can send their details directly to Cotton Australia now in preparation for the relaunch of Pick N Match early in 2012.
