Graham Shepherd, a leading NZ agronomist will explain his method during this workshop.
To reduce the effect of a drought and increase the resistance of a pastoral farm to drought conditions, there are 18 key measures that farmers can address to increase the drought resistance of their farm. These key factors provide a Drought Resistance Index (DRI) of whether a field is likely to have a high, moderate or low resistance to dry conditions. With the onset of an El-Nino and the potential for the development of a significant soil moisture deficit, it is timely for farmers to start to address those issues that can make their farms more tolerant of drought conditions.
