2011 Canterbury Regional Supreme Winners

Eric and Maxine Watson’s combination of efficient productivity and environmental consideration on their 490ha arable property just east of Ashburton drew comprehensive praise from the award judges.

The judges wrote in their feedback report: “It is clear that with your sound agronomic management, thorough understanding of the science behind the production system, efficient and sustainable use of the available resources and a keen desire to excel, you are well on your way to becoming one of the best arable operations in New Zealand.”
