June 29, 2022
In this episode, we talk about dealing with the stress of high farm input costs and labour shortages. Owen Catto from The Regional Men’s Health Initiative joins us to share some tips.
We also get an update on resistance testing in Western Australia. Agvivo Agronomist Tim Boyes has embraced resistance testing with his WA based clients and coordinated closely with Dr Roberto Busi who runs University of Western Australia’s resistance testing service. Tim shares what impact resistance testing has had on his client’s farming programs.
