About Plant & Pick Spares

Third-generation cotton farmers providing cotton module wrap, cotton picker parts, planter parts, lubes & greases to Australian farmers

Based in Dalby, Queensland, Plant & Pick Spares (PPS) is an Australian, family-owned company providing growers with high-quality aftermarket machine parts, wraps, lubricants and more, which are all trialled and tested for Australian conditions. 

As third-generation farmers and contract cotton pickers, we began to see an increase in price and a decrease in the quality of genuine spares and parts for well-known machines.

Sourcing & developing parts for all well-known pickers, planters & more

Following international travel researching the cotton industry, we saw the issues we were experiencing in our operations, were being felt by growers across the globe. 

Looking to cut overheads in our operations and following meetings with many reliable suppliers, we began trialling aftermarket parts and spares on our machines in 2015.

Developed for Australian long staple cotton

Finding the parts were performing as well, if not better than genuine parts, we began supplying parts to neighbouring properties around the Dalby region. 

As we began sourcing parts for more and more cotton and mixed crop growers, we officially began operating under the Plant & Pick Spares name in 2017. 

Since then, we have extended our spare parts for a wider range of machines. We've grown our offerings to include our PPS developed products, which include:  

  • PPS Cotton Module Wrap 
  • CleanPik Cotton Picker Spindle
  • Spindle Grease 
  • Spindle Cleaner 
  • Mud Runner Wheel

Role: Founder & Managing Director 

Qualifications & Experience: Nuffield Australia 2015 Scholar, Cotton Australia Board Member, Advanced Diploma of Agribusiness Management, Diploma of Agriculture, Agribusiness/Agricultural Business Operations


A fourth-generation farmer and contractor from Dalby, Queensland, Matt has spent his entire life working in and researching the cotton industry. 

As a 2015 recipient of the Nuffield Scholar Program, Matt travelled across 11 countries to research the quality and grading of cotton in the Australian market to find better ways colour downgrades can be managed in the industry.

While studying for his report, Matt met with cotton growers from other countries and discovered the issues of the quality and price of genuine cotton picker parts were not only being experienced by Australian growers but growers across the globe.

Returning home to his family property in 2015, Matt began trialling aftermarket cotton picker parts on his machines in his fields. Seeing results of the same quality, if not better than genuine parts, Matt began selling parts to neighbouring properties.

Following positive success, he expanded the product range and officially began selling under the Plant & Pick Spares business in 2017. 

Since then, Matt and his family have grown Plant & Pick Spares to what it is today — a cost-effective, high-quality aftermarket alternative for Australian growers. 

Matt continues to support growers and the Australian cotton industry by innovating Plant & Pick Spares' products to evolve with the Australian Cotton industry.
