Progressive Farmer of the Year sponsored by Agrovista

Article taken from the Farmbusiness

We are looking for examples of farmers and growers who are re-engineering farming through good practice that recognises the importance of successful business.  Progressive farmers employ the right people for the right jobs, have strong cost-control, take a long-term view and run a profitable enterprise.  Today’s successful farmers are rural entrepreneurs who see assets in terms of people, buildings, land and skills, and determine the most profitable way to utilise those assets.  Shortlisted candidates will be leaders in their field, who others in similar areas wish to blueprint because of their business sense and innovative approach to problem solving.  The winner this year needs to tell us about their ‘farming’ business.  We believe that progressive farmers by their very nature take care of the environment around them and utilise technology, but we want their awards entry to talk more specifically about farming practice, proven business examples, what is progressive about your approach to farming, the tools and techniques you use, the technology, the choice of crop, inputs, machinery, the experts that you work with to plan for success.  Please give examples of the processes particular to you and how you believe you could be named the Progressive Farmer of the Year for 2015.
