Farm Landscape Research Centre Conference 2020
It was a credit to our business to have Brittany Hill, a Farms Team member invited to present at the Massey University Farm Landscape Research Centre Conference in February.
Brittany attended the three-day conference on Nutrient and Environmental Management for Agriculture, Horticulture and Forestry, and presented on ‘Comparing Tararua Dairy Farms ability to meet 20-year Nitrogen Leaching Limits using Overseer 5.2.6 and Table 14.2 in the One Plan, with Overseer 6.3.0 and the Recalibrated Table.’
Brittany found the conference very informative and came away with a fresh understanding and appreciation for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, nitrogen leaching and water quality issues that farmers and regulatory bodies are facing in today’s agricultural industry. She learnt about the challenges and opportunities surrounding these issues from both a farmer and regulatory point of view.
It was a privilege for QCONZ to be involved in this wider industry discussion.
