Upper Waikato nutrient efficiency study farmer follow up
Report: TR 2010/31
Author: AgFirst Waikato
The upper Waikato nutrient efficiency study was completed in 2009. Farmers had the opportunity to attend a meeting to discuss the overall findings shortly after. A follow-up visit to each participating farmer was carried out to determine what changes had been adopted as a result of the initial analysis, and to review the extension process used.
This document summarises the overall themes from the on farm meetings, as well as notes from the visits.
