Hamish competes for top title

Hamish Gates of Pukekohe, who took out Young Grower of the Year, will be going head to head against five other finalists to decide who will be named Young Horticulturist of the Year 2015.
The grand final will be held over November 11 and 12 at the Auckland Botanic Gardens in Manurewa, where the winner will be named. His idea was to use Radiofrequency identification (RFID) technology to maximise the water use efficiency on crops. Best of luck, Hamish!

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
