While Scott has been able to adopt new management practices that have helped to break the monoculture of cane and in time improve soil health, there are still issues around  input management that he and OCPS are keen improve from both an environmental and economic view point. This includes maximising water use over a large area for the best return and reducing the costs of big operations such as planting, fertilising and harvesting by reducing inputs and improving efficiency.
