Farm Source have partnered with Wildeye to help farmers improve sustainability, productivity and profitability.
20 Fonterra suppliers in the Canterbury and Waikato regions trialled the Wildeye Moisture Probes. Trial participant Tim Green, who farms 1,650 cows on 560 hectares (ha) in Leeston, was impressed with the simplicity of the Wildeye’s installation. “It was very easy to install and it didn’t disturb the soil where we put the probe in, which helped us get the data quicker,” he said.
Another trial participant, Ramon Westerbaan, said putting the moisture-meter in himself meant he had more confidence in the results. “To be honest it was really simple to put in and I’d highly recommend it instead of paying someone else to put one in,” said Ramon, who looked at the data once a day.
