William Farrer

We stopped to photograph this memorial to William Farrer in Queanbeyan, New South Wales earlier this year. Farrer was a famous plant breeder who developed disease-resistant wheat varieties, including the very successful Federation strain. As a result, he is often called the “Father of the Australian Wheat Industry”.
