11540 Case study 2 - HOPAT

Using precision agriculture to tackle challenges

Soil variability, ryegrass weed pressure and a relatively small cropping area are just three of the challenges Daniel Adams wanted to tackle when he began exploring precision agriculture methods almost 20 years ago.
Daniel and his wife Lora, farm 900ha across two properties at Cockaleechie, north east of Cummins, on South Australia’s
Eyre Peninsula.
The rolling hills, with crests 80m above the flatlands, strongly influence the movement of rainwater as it flows through a range of soils that vary from heavy red clay to good loam and acidic grey sand.
