Any entry not complying with the Terms and Conditions is invalid.

4. Entrants must be within the Participating Retailer’s trading terms throughout the Promotional Period and must not have overdue monies owing as at the Promotion draw dates in order to be eligible to claim any prize.

5. Employees, business directors and managers (and their immediate families) of the Promoter, Participating Retailers, and agencies associated with this Promotion are ineligible to enter. Immediate family means any of the following: spouse, ex-spouse, de-facto spouse, child or step-child (whether natural or by adoption), parent, step-parent, grandparent, step-grandparent, uncle, aunt, niece, nephew, brother, sister, step-brother, step-sister or first cousin. 

6. Promotion commences at 12:00am AEDT on 12/03/2018 and ends at 11:59pm AEDT on 07/03/2019 (“Promotional Period”). 

7. To be eligible to enter the Promotion, Entrants must spend a minimum of $100 (including GST) on Participating Products at a Participating Retailer in a single transaction during the Promotional Period (“Qualifying Spend”). “Participating Retailers” are any stores who sell Bayer CropScience products. “Participating Products” are those products listed at www.yearofthegrower.com.au For clarity, a Qualifying Spend needs to be made in a single transaction from a Participating Retailer during the Promotional Period in order to be considered eligible for an entry. 

8. To enter, Entrants must then visit www.yearofthegrower.com.au, follow the prompts to the entry page and complete all requested details, including details of their Qualifying Spend, and submit the fully completed entry form during the Promotional Period. Entrants will receive one (1) entry for each increment of $100 in a Qualifying Spend. For example, if an Entrant spends $2,340 (including GST) on Participating Products in a single transaction during the Promotional Period, they will receive twenty-three (23) entries into the relevant Promotion draw. Any Qualifying Spend made by an Entrant that is a business must be made by an authorised representative (aged 18 years or over) of that business. 

9. Incomplete, returned or cancelled orders will be deemed invalid for the purposes of this Promotion and will not form part of any Qualifying Spend even if this occurs after the relevant draw (in which case any prize awarded is deemed forfeited).

10. Multiple entries permitted, subject to the following: (a) Entrants will receive one (1) entry for each increment of $100 made in a single transaction in a Qualifying Spend; and (b) each Qualifying Spend must be entered onto the website separately and in accordance with entry requirements in order to qualify for any entry. 

11. The Promoter reserves the right, at any time, to verify the validity of Entrants and their Qualifying Spend (including an Entrant’s identity, age, place of business, residence and relevant order and purchase records) and reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any Entrant who the Promoter has reason to believe has breached any of these Terms and Conditions, tampered with the Promotion entry process or engaged in any unlawful or other improper misconduct calculated to jeopardise fair and proper conduct of the Promotion. Errors and omissions may be accepted at the Promoter's discretion. Failure by the Promoter to enforce any of its rights at any stage does not constitute a waiver of those rights. The Promoter's legal rights to recover damages or other compensation from such an offender are reserved.

12. If there is a dispute as to the identity of an Entrant, the Promoter reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine the identity of the Entrant.

13. Entrants must retain their original or a copy of their purchase receipts for all entries as proof of purchase. Failure to produce the proof of purchase for all entries when requested may, in the absolute discretion of the Promoter, result in invalidation of ALL of an Entrant’s entries and forfeiture of any right to a prize. Purchase receipt(s) must clearly specify the Participating Retailer of purchase, receipt number and that the Qualifying Spend was made during the Promotional Period but prior to entry.

14. There will be two (2) draws (drawn on different days) conducted for Entrants who have made a Qualifying Spend during each six (6) month period from the beginning of the Promotion until 04/03/19 (each a “Draw”).
