11543 Case study 5 - HOPAT

Pioneers aim to make every last drop count

Retaining the flexibility to adjust inputs at seeding to match their confidence in the coming season has been central to the adoption of precision agriculture at Batten Farms.

Brothers Jason and Kim Batten, and their wives Nicole and Jasmine, farm 10,000ha of owned and leased land at East Yuna, in the northern wheatbelt region of Western Australia.

They crop about 6000ha each year, producing wheat, canola and lupins, and operate Douwana Dorper Stud, as well as running a flock of about 1000 commercial Dorpers and Merino ewes.
