In 2017 the Toscan family were awarded the prestigious Monsanto Cotton Grower of the Year Award.
In March 2018 the family hosted the Monsanto Cotton Grower of the Year field day out at 'Ringwood' Darlington Point on what was a spectacular day showcasing the best of what cotton farming has to offer.
Success at Cavaso Farming can be attributed to a number of innovative moves.

They are dedicated to streamlining their operation by reducing the number of crop varieties and employing Integrated Pest Management, encouraging beneficial insects and protecting bees.
