Rob Massina has been elected as the president of the Ricegrowers Association of Australia.
Mr Massina will replace Jeremy Morton, who recently stood down after he was elected to the board of Sunrice as a grower director.
Before being elected to president, Mr Massina was senior vice president and led the Berriquin RGA branch.
Mr Massina and his wife Ainsley run irrigation properties between Jerilderie and Finley where they grow rice, grain and run sheep.
He has previously been a part of the SunRice grower reference group.
"I want to see our rice industry continue to proposer well into the future," Mr Massina said.
"There are very few agricultural industries that can boast the complete supply chain and marketing strategies achieved by the Australian rice industry".
