Ground Effect®, Autumn 2016
Welcome to the second edition of Ground Effect
A recurring theme in our second edition is the resilience that is a characteristic of successful farming operations.
Whether it’s the relatively young Alice Reilly and Stewart Watson (page 10), or the experienced Neil and Dot Smith (page 32), their persistence in the face of adversity is an inspiration.
New Zealand agribusiness faces some of the “great uncontrollables” such as weather, exchange rate and global price trends for inputs and outputs. Whatever the ups and downs, you can be certain that trained people armed with farm data, a scientific approach, and a willingness to help will go a long way.
Included in this issue:
How well are we managing the fertility of our soils?
Winter is Coming
Tips on nutrient losses.
