FMC raises funds for Royal Flying Doctor Service through sale of Graslan® herbicide

Creation date: 13 April 2021

FMC and rural retail stores have joined forces to donate AUD 30,296.75 to the Queensland Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) to aid rural communities in Queensland through the sale of Graslan® herbicide.


The Graslan® promotion, which ran from May to October 2020, donated AUD 50 for every tonne of product sold in participating outlets.


“Donating to the RFDS contributes to bringing necessary healthcare to rural and remote communities,” said Andrew Burrows, FMC Area Sales Manager Queensland North. “Our team works remotely with Queensland graziers, providing a vital aerial service delivering the aerial application of Graslan® herbicide to paddocks, so the Queensland RFDS was a fitting choice as a recipient for the donation.”


Access to a flying medical service is vital for the health and well-being of FMC’s customers, their families and the local communities. The donation has bettered last year’s effort by the Graslan team who donated just over AUD 28,000 to the Queensland RFDS.


“We’re delighted to have increased our donation from last year,” said Angus Wilson, FMC Northern Regional Sales Manager. “By donating to the RFDS, we know the money is benefitting rural people and the graziers using our product.”


FMC has received local support from key customers such as Nutrien, Elders and CRT in north and central Queensland, which Angus describes as being invaluable.


“Working side-by-side with our rural resellers, who in turn work closely with the graziers using our product, has enabled us to contribute to the great work that the RFDS does in their communities,” continued Angus. “We all believe it is essential to keep the Flying Doctor flying.”
