HIN block variable rate nutrient application

The Reinaudo family are 4th generation farmers, currently consisting of Victor and Nelson (Brothers), and Nelson’s sons Darren and Michael. As well as their 750 ha of cane farm, they have an 80,000 tonne harvesting contract and undertake contract planting work.

For many years it has concerned them that each block on their farm had large variations within the block, yet they were applying the same amount of fertiliser across the block.
