Calling all farmers and growers – entries for the 2018 Ballance Farm Environment Awards will close on Friday October 31.
The annual awards are open to all farmers and horticulturists, including orchardists, vegetable growers and viticulturists, and are designed to recognise and celebrate environmentally responsible and profitable farmers, while providing information on best-practice management of their natural resources.
Organiser the NZ Farm Environment Trust says being part of the awards is a stimulating, informative and enjoyable opportunity for farmers and growers to benchmark their operations with like-minded people in their region.
There will be two rounds of judging, the first from November 8 to 17 and the second in mid-January, and the winners will be announced at a gala dinner next April.
