About the day. This field day will start with an open discussion about the various methods of testing your farm to assess its health and productivity. We will look at soil and plant testing, biological tests and Visual soil assessments. The discussion will be led by Steve Erickson who has 35 years of growing experience and has done a wide range of testing on his farm in Waihi.  We will then have a presentation from Linda and Boyd Matson about their farm and a farm walk to look at pasture soils and stock.
