Ardrossan Orchards and using the Phytec App
Two years ago, Batlow, NSW was devastated by one of Australia’s worst bushfire seasons on record. Our evokeAG. host and fellow farmer, Stephen Honner caught up with Ian Cathels, Manager of Ardrossan Orchards, at their Woodburn orchard, in the middle of their fruit picking season – to see firsthand their progress and how new technology is driving on-farm efficiencies.
Stephen and Ian speak about the season, the challenges of adopting new technology, and the lessons about a new app Ian is using called Phytec that’s helping Ian make better on-farm decisions around irrigation and ensuring he stays on track to hit his targets for the fruit market.
