“We’re all guilty of doing things because we’ve always done it. We don’t sit back and question ‘how much does it cost to plough this field?’ Its not about chasing the biggest yield, its about questioning every decision, understanding every aspect of the farm, growing an efficient crop with the right input costs and the best end value.”
