Welcome to Nuffield 2013

To say I was excited when I was awarded my Nuffield Scholarship in October 2012 is an understatement. I had a few recent scholars encouraging me to apply, and I finally did while in Europe in June 2012 in the middle of a farm tour/holiday. 

I am very proud to be sponsored by The William Buckland Foundation and to have been selected by Nuffield Australia to represent them. 

I am planning to study the role of cover crops in dryland farming systems and what application systems and fertilisers might be available to increase nitrogen efficiency. 

Change is never easy, especially for farmers in a cost driven production system, but unless change is looked for, it will never be found (that's about as philosophical as I will get).
