Managing climatic extremes in the Lower Namoi
Session 3a The climate question
Tuesday August 07 at 4:15 pm
David Ricardo has been farming in the Walgett district with his brother, Peter for over 30 years. In that time they have made enormous changes to their farm system. Moving away from stock and conventional tillage methods to adopting zero till / gps tramlining and crop rotation, it’s a very different operation today. With numerous awards for winter crops over the years including Australian Pulse Grower of the Year 2005, David was a first time cotton grower in 2016. Dealing with climate variability is one of the greatest challenges of farming at Walgett.
