Why are you passionate about farming?

I love the science and practice of growing a variety of crops. Interested in innovation and technology associated with modern agriculture. Problem solving and managing risk and variables such as climate.

Best days of being a farmer:

I would love to farm in the mallee/ Wimmera area of Victoria or the mallee region of South Australia. These are the regions where I have spent the majority of my agronomic career and where I have the most experience. I believe success in farming is measured by successfully growing economic crops whilst leaving the land in better condition than you found it. Using a combination of experience and decision support tools to make economically sound decisions and taking opportunities when they are presented. Using resources wisely. In a perfect world I would love to build on my existing small farm and reach a scale where I could have my son and daughters working with me if they choose a similar path.
